PDF File Size: 216 KB | Download   
Nepal is a disaster prone country with 49 of its 75 districts assessed as prone to floods and landslides, 23 to wildfires, and one to windstorm. Further indicating the vulnerability of Nepal, the National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management notes that out of 2,315 glacial lakes of Nepal, 22 are in imminent danger of outburst due to increasing glacial melt. Natural disaster is an unavoidable and increasing phenomenon, especially with the growing threat of climate change. The Climate Change Risk Atlas 2010 ranks Nepal as the fourth most vulnerable country worldwide,20th on the global hazard map, 30th in terms of water-induced hazards such as landslides and floods and 11th most at-risk country to earthquakes. Nepal’s National Assessment Report for the World Summit on Sustainable Development (2002) notes the link between the climate and the risk of landslides.
