VIDEO: GCCA contributed to this project in Nepal - Implementation of NAPA
"Nepal is ranked as one of the most climate vulnerable countries in the world. Its remoteness, undulating terrain, fragile topography, extremely diverse landscape and unevenly distributed resources will pose different levels of location and context specific climate change impacts.
Nepal's climate change policy (2011) sets out the goal to improve the people's livelihoods through climate change impact mitigation and adaptation activities. One of the emphases of this policy is implementation of community based adaptation plans as mentioned in the National Adaptation Programme of Actions (NAPA) 2010. In this context, Nepal Climate Change Support Program (NCCSP) is commencing at the right time to assist the Government of Nepal (GON) in implementing the climate change policy (2011) and the NAPA, and to support other initiatives, including coordination mechanism as well as delivering climate adaptation results at the local level."
The Nepal Climate Change Support Program is funded under GCCA. Watch the video to know more about it!
