Transcript of Nepal's Climate
Flooding is caused by increased temperatures due to glaciers melting.There is an issue with lakes not being able to support melt water and as a result, they are flooding valleys. Landslides will increase in mountains regions because slopes will become unstable. This will result in less crops. There will be even more rain during the monmoon perod.
What can we do to help?
In the past few years, Nepal has moved its National Adaption Programme of Action (NAPA), a funded Pilot Program On Climate Resilience (PPCR), enacted a national Climate Change Policy (CCP) , and has proved testing ground for emerging Local Adaption Plans of Action (LAPA). The climate institutions have been the same with a simiarly growing portfolio of agriculture investment and research plans.

Nomads and livestock farming have found negative impact through climatic variability at upper Mustang (Lomathang).Most highland communities depend on cattle and sheep farming and, therefore, have serious concerns over the decreasing making of grass in the Himalayan grassland.
