Erratic rainfall, hailstorm, longer drought period, flood, landslide and windstorm are the climatic hazards in the study area. In this study, forest cover change patterns over the period of to were analyzed to understand the situation of forest cover before and after the community forest handover.
The study analyzed the preference of ecosystem services by different stakeholders, their willingness to pay WTP and analyzed the factors that affect WTP for drinking water service among the users in Panchase area of Phewa watershed.
They have been traditionally practicing adaptation measures against the perceived negative impacts of climate change.
This study aimed to establish the base line information for aboveground forest carbon stock of Sal dominated community forest namely Chaukichalise and Janajagaran of Ramjhakot VDC, Tanahun District.
Secondary data were collected from the District Forest Office records, meeting minutes and records from CFUGs, policy documents, and other related literatures. Walking distance to resource significantly increases the favors of collection indicate that valuable CAT collected are from near location.
For the study, out of 17 program VDCs Village Development Committee 5 VDCs purposively selected considering the criteria of age of the groups and ethnicity so that proper sample size i.
In developing countries, Moringa has the potential to improve nutrition, boost food security, foster rural development, and support sustainable land care. Likewise, financial investment from users on OP implementation is also low and expenditures are not made according to the plan.
Similarly, people have negative attitude towards canids conservation. The value of exposure was found to be higher than adaptive capacity in all communities.
Local level institutions have also been formed to discuss and plan adaptation strategy. The outcome of the logistic regression revealed that male member of HHs was found significantly involve in collection of NTFPs.
Phewa Watershed, which is under the several anthropogenic threats. Primary data were collected through the focus group discussion with the Community Forest User Groups consultation with the District Forest Officials and key informants of Lamjung and Tanahu and timber businessman from all selected areas through checklists.
The result showed that the respondents revealed Bamboo, Amrisoo, Nigalo and Napiyar as most popular and effective species for bioengineering measures, whereas lab tests of 8 grass species showed Vetivar and Amrisoo as effective species for slope stability through cohesion added by roots.
The rainfall pattern was found unpredictable and community perceived that they are experiencing less rainfall in recent days in terms of frequency mostly in water demanding period.
To mitigate HWC, villagers are adopting locally adaptive measures; community herding, defensive noise, releasing dog, predator proof corral, chasing, and scarecrow. This is mainly due to high investment cost of the scientific management and low price of the timber to the users.
Data were aggregated using a composite index and differential vulnerabilities were measured. Heavy grazing by livestock leads to increasing of the unpalatable species and decreasing of palatable species of wild ungulates which means SWR has impact of grazing.
Fire risk must involve both ignition and spreading risk. The variables were used on the basis of previous agro-forestry adoption studies and on the basis of study area context.
By applying similar approaches in other contexts, especially in the developing world, the issues inhibiting broader development processes could be integrated with an understanding of climate change impacts for targeted, comprehensive adaptation policy outcomes.
Bio-engineering techniques are most useful techniques to stabilize marginal and degraded lands of watershed and to maintain the soil productivity and to generate income of the rural people.
This study applied Livelihood vulnerability index LVI to measure climate change vulnerability and analyzed adaptation practices in three communities namely Tilahar, Sarangkot and Bhatkhola of Parbat, Kaski and Syangja district respectively.
It is more likely that SciFM may promote commercial forest management. This research examines the implications of climate change on the local social-ecological systems of the Kaligandaki Basin, Nepal; it maps the adaptation efforts of communities; and assesses food and livelihood in security and vulnerability of the social-ecosystems to inform adaptation policy and practice.
For the household level information, three CFUGs representing different economic classes, gender and caste were taken randomly.

Climate change is a phenomenon due to emissions of greenhouse gases from fuel combustion, deforestation, urbanization and industrialization (Upreti, ) resulting variations in solar energy, temperature and precipitation.
IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON AGRICULTURAL LANDS AND AGRO-ECO-ZONES Nepal has various types of agricultural zones like plains, hills, mid hills, high hills and mountains. Changes in agri-zones lead to the change in cropping pattern of the zone. Climatic parameters have potential impact to change the ecological distribution of.
