    The extreme weather events caused by Climate Change are often responsible for physical injury and loss of life and people to many vulnerable diseases (UNDP/ 2007)
    Between 1980 – 2007, 98 % of those affected by natural disasters were victims of climate-change related events (Ganeshan & Diamond/2009)
  • 6. Potable water supplies will come under growing pressure as the warming temperature associated with Climate Change increase water pollution from bacterial growth and algal blooms (IPCC/2007)
    Climate Change will continue to affect all aspects of food security (FAO/2008)
    Water scarcity impacts on health, food availability & people’ condition of living (ADB/2001)
  • 7. Widespread water pollution resulting from Climate Change has resulted in increased water scarcity, poorer public health, lower agricultural production, declining quality of aquatic animals (ADB/ 2001)
    The lack of easy access to water accentuates the hardships of the poor. The urban poor in densely populated cities of Nepal queue at public standpoints to access limited water amount (ADB/2001)
  • 8. In rural Nepal many village people, mainly women & female children, still walk several kilometers over hills to fetch water (ADB/ 2001)
    Climate Change and its impacts on availability of access to safe water will hinder the developing nations to meet the MDGs.
