  1. 1. Local practices of reducing vulnerability, and securing livelihoods in the age of climate change: Lesson learned from the analysis of community adaptation practices in Nepal Dharam R. Uprety and Ramu Subedi Multi Stakeholder Forestry Programme, Nepal, e-mail:
  2. 2. Context: Climate change • 4th Climate vulnerable country • 1.9 million people highly climate vulnerable, and 10 million are increasingly at risk • 6 thematic areas are identified for Adaptation (NAPA-2010) • Framework for Local Adaptation Plan 2011, identified the process of climate change vulnerability assessment • About 2000 Local adaptation Plans prepared, and nearly 1000 of them are supported by agencies both Government and non-Government
  3. 3. Key climate change impact • Decrease of agriculture productivity. • Increased frequency of forest fire, floods/landslides and droughts; • Grow and spreads of invasive species (e.g. Mikania Micrantha, Chromolaena Odorata) • Decrease of agriculture productivity in Mountain region • Drying up the water sources • Unknown diseases
  4. 4. Key adaptation for resilience 0 20 40 60 80 100 120
  5. 5. Implementation support to LAPs Improved Cook stove Irrigation support
  6. 6. Implementation support to LAPs Capacity building on CCA Managing river flow
  7. 7. Building ecological resilience- waste land management Restoration of ecology Livelihood support
  8. 8. Lesson learned • Working with community level multi-stakeholder mechanism can contribute to build synergy, develop community ownership and contribute to mainstreaming of climate change adaptation into planning process. • Local facilitation through social mobilisers can create an enabling environment for adaptation financing, community participation and decision making, and fund leveraging with other agencies/service providers. • Sectorial integration is required for climate change adaptation and resilience building among the key stakeholders for effective adaptation and reduce vulnerability of those suffering from climate change.
  9. 9. Thank you very much
