2nd Workshop on the Development of a Climate Change Adaptation Toolkit for Nepal

The second workshop on the project “Working Towards Improving Resilience and Adaptive Capacity to Climate Change in the Hindu-Kush-Himalayan Region” (PSLP-IRAP)" took place in Kathamndu, Nepal. The aim of this project “ is to use participatory approaches to identify the risks, vulnerabilities and opportunities arising from climate change impacts on small upstream communities in Nepal and India and downstream communities in Bangladesh. The project will facilitate capacity to help communities cope better with those risks and vulnerabilities identified. A key objective is the development of a transferrable climate change adaptation toolkit, which is based on a set of scientific and evidence based methodologies or tools to guide local planners and policy makers during the adaptive response planning process. This project is supported by the Public Sector Linkages Program (PSLP) under the auspices of the Australian AID Program (DFAT). The Australian National University's lead public sector counterpart agency is the Monsoon Asia Integrated Regional Study (MAIRS), Chinese Academy of Sciences.
