Highlights on Energy Security for Cimate Change Adaptation

This is a highlight paper to move ahead on identifying linkages of renewable energy for climate change adaptation process. It is the continuation on the effort, which was made earlier through the publication 'Climate Change and Local Impacts-Synergy Between Adaptation and Renewable Energy Development for Nepal'. It starts with general understanding that- Energy is the vital tool, which enhances and supports the ability to pursue basic and productive activities in building economy from the individuals to the macro level.

Treeline dynamics with climate change at the central Nepal Himalaya

Treeline shifting in tandem with climate change has widely been reported from various parts of the world. In Nepal, several impacts of climate change on thephysical environment have been observed, but study on the biological impacts is lacking. This dendrochronological study was carried out at the treeline in the high mountain slope of Kalchuman Lake (3750–4003ma.s.l.) area of Manaslu Conservation Area in the central Nepal Himalaya to explore the impact of climate change on the treeline dynamic.
