Abstract

Climate change is a global issue that is affecting the lives of people in Nepal today. The implications of climate change tend to be more severe in developing countries where the majority of the population are dependent on rain-fed agriculture options for their livelihoods and have limited capacity to adapt to changing weather patterns and seasonal variations (MoE 2010). Climate change has created additional burdens for developing nations, particularly for those already suffering from poverty and increasingly unsustainable livelihoods. While the impacts of climate change have been severe over the past two decades, projected scenarios indicate a worsening future.
