Nepal - Nepal - Climate: Nepal’s climate, influenced by elevation as well as by its location in a subtropical latitude, ranges from subtropical monsoon conditions in the Tarai, through a warm temperate climate between 4, and 7, feet in the mid-mountain region, to cool temperate conditions in the higher parts of mountains between 7, feet, to an Alpine climate at altitudes. Drawing on data from the University of Notre Dame, the Drivers and Disrupters Report ranks India as one of the most exposed countries in the world to climate change.

Four regionally downscaled global change scenarios, for a case study region near Visp, Switzerland ( km2), were used to examine the impacts of climate and socio-economic changes on four. The Cultural and Geopolitical Impacts of Climate Change By Lynnley Browning On 6/3/15 at AM EDT Local residents wade through a flooded street in downtown Kota .

  in adapting to the effects of climate change. This book outlines the impact of climate change in four developing country regions: Africa, Asia, Latin America and small island developing States; the vulnerability of these regions to future climate change; current adaptation plans, strategies and actions; and future adaptation options and needs. "Economic analyses play a critical role in consideration of climate change policies. Identifying, assessing and communicating the implications of economic uncertainty and knowledge gaps remains a major challenge - for example - in characterization of long-term technology change and valuation of non-market impacts.

It is clear, then, that climate change has major implications for Nepal's ability to produce food for its population. The results of global climate scenario modeling suggest that the impacts of climate change may be intense at high elevations and in regions with complex topography, as is the case in Nepal's mid-hills.

Nepal is one of the least developed country in the world and was ranked as the 4th most vulnerable country due to the impacts of climate change by Maplecroft in.

Aggregating impacts adds up the total impact of climate change across sectors and/or regions (IPCC, a).In producing aggregate impacts, there are a number of difficulties, such as predicting the ability of societies to adapt climate change, and estimating how future economic and social development will progress (Smith et al., ).

It is also necessary for the researcher to. This book conducts a holistic analysis of climate change perceptions, vulnerabilities, impacts, and adaptation, based on the primary household-data collected from the Chepang community residing in the rural Mid-Hills of Nepal.

Socio-economic and demographic data from the household survey is integrated with meteorological and spatial data to. Plausible estimates of climate change impacts on agriculture require integrated use of climate, crop, and economic models.

We investigate the contribution of economic models to uncertainty in this impact chain. In the nine economic models included, the direction of management intensity, area, consumption, and international trade responses to harmonized crop yield shocks from climate change.

Nepal has an extreme altitudinal range from 60– m with heterogeneous topography and distinct climatic zones. The country is considered a biodiversity hotspot, with nearly a quarter of the land area located in protected areas.

Nepal and the surrounding Himalayan region are particularly vulnerable to climate change because of their abrupt ecological and climatic transitions. Immigration at the U.S. border can be expected to increase as climate change worsens conditions in Latin America.

The World Bank estimates that as many as million people in Mexico and Central America will migrate internally by due to climate impact, and that subsequent deterioration will further exacerbate the movements of these migrants. A leading international peer-reviewed academic journal, publishing on all aspects of climate change policy, including adaptation and mitigation, governance and negotiations, policy design, implementation and impact, and the full range of economic, social and political issues at stake in responding to climate change.

1. Introduction. Climate impact assessment needs to take account of two interrelated processes: socio-economic change and climate change.

In principle, by combining the two it is possible to evaluate the exposure of future societies and ecosystems to harm from climate change. as a result of climate change (UNFCCC ).2 Key climate change impacts in the Asia-Pacific region include increases in the intensity and/or frequency of disasters and extreme events such as heat waves, tropical cyclones, prolonged dry spells, intense rainfall, tornadoes, snow avalanches, thunderstorms, severe dust storms and sea level rise.

Since climate change impacts are already being felt, it is of paramount importance to focus on research works to understand and mitigate the impacts. The information generated from this study could contribute to both short- and long-term planning and policy development works related to food security and climate change in the near future.

Understanding the climate change impacts on the world economy is, obviously, of paramount importance for both climate change mitigation and adaptation policies.

Modelling climate impacts, however, is a quite hard enterprise, for two main reasons. First, climate change is a systemic phenomenon, both in terms of natural and human.

Projected climate change will affect certain groups of people more than others, depending on where they live and their ability to cope with different climate hazards. In some cases, the impacts of climate change are expected to worsen existing vulnerabilities.

Geographic Location. Where people live influences their vulnerability to climate change. Signs of Climate Change. Climate change is happening now, and the effects can be seen on every continent and in every ocean. While certain effects of climate change can be beneficial, particularly in the short term, current and future effects of climate change pose considerable risks to people’s health and welfare, and the environment.

The same set of greenhouse gas and socio-economic scenarios were also used in projections that included the effects of climate change. Including climate change, three scenarios (SRES A1, B1, B2) projected million undernourished by the yearwhile another scenario with climate change (SRES A2) projected –1, million.

[Luni Piya; K L Maharjan; Niraj Prakash Joshi] -- This book conducts a holistic analysis of climate change perceptions, vulnerabilities, impacts, and adaptation, based on the primary household-data collected from the Chepang community residing in.

Adaptation Programme of Action to climate change (NAPA). The Nepal Health Sector Plan has envisioned strengthening health system of Nepal to cope with the health effect of climate change. Nepal is implementing its Health Sector Strategy that also includes a chapter on climate change.

The second most cited paper (n = ) was “Climate change impacts, adaptive capacity, and vulnerability of European forest ecosystems”, which was also published in in Forest Ecology and Management and was presented at the same conference by Linder et al.

In the published research, current knowledge on the observed and projected impacts. Agriculture in South Asia is vulnerable to climate change. Therefore, adaptation measures are required to sustain agricultural productivity, to reduce vulnerability, and to enhance the resilience of the agricultural system to climate change.

There are many adaptation practices in the production systems that have been proposed and tested for minimizing the effects of climate change. The information on the health effects of climate change has been excerpted from the Third National Climate Assessment’s Health Chapter external icon.

Climate change, together with other natural and human-made health stressors, influences human health and disease in numerous ways. Piya, L., Maharjan, K.L. and Joshi, N.P.
