Exploring climate adaptive mechanisms on watershed management

    Exploring Climate Adaptive Mechanisms on Watershed Management is one of the pilot projects, implemented by Local Initiatives for Biodiversity, Research, and Development (LIBIRD), under Climate Adaptation Design and Piloting Nepal (CADP-N) mechanism supported by UK Department for International Development (DFID) and Ministry of Environment (MOE), Government of Nepal. The main objective was to explore mechanisms for the management of Lake Watershed through mainstreaming and mobilizing local institutions in Rupa Lake Watershed in Kaski district of Nepal.

Review of Climate Change Adaptation Practices in South Asia

In South Asia, despite various initiatives from different organisations, there is still a lack of evidence-based examples of successful adaptation programmes, as well as comprehensive documentation of key criteria for success or reasons for failure. This review of CCA practices captures examples of good practice in CCA programming in South Asia, in order to inform Oxfam’s learning, thereby enabling it and other organisations to replicate some of these good practices in their own programmes and to advocate adequate financing and governance.

Guideline for thePreparation of District Climate and Energy Plans

The guideline is aimed at supporting planners for integrating renewable energy with the climate change issues in preparing DCEPs. Specifically, the guideline will support energy planning in the context of climate change and GSI by: 1. Providing a systematic process, steps and tools to create District Climate and Energy plans that integrate climate change and GSI into energy planning 2. Providing ideas on assessing vulnerabilities of energy resources, sources and consumption and opportunities created by climate change 3.

District Climate and Energy Plan (DCEP)-Mustang

The overall goal of the DCEP is to create an implementation plan that increases appropriate RET dissemination and construction in each district of Nepal and contributes to Nepal’s national and local climate change mitigation and adaptation plans. DCEPs will act as a systematic roadmap, which serves as a periodic rolling plan of the district in the sector of renewable energy development and climate change preparation.
