PDF File Size: 134 KB | Download   
Agriculture remains Nepal’s principal economic activity, employing 66 percent of the population. Natural disasters such as floods,landslides,snow avalanches, glacial lake outburst floods, hailstorms, thunderstorms, cold waves, hot waves, drought and epidemics threaten agricultural productivity, and cause poverty and food insecurity. Poor, marginalized and disadvantaged groups of people, women and children are hardest hit by such disasters. The Disasters Inventory System (1971-2005) shows an increasing trend of disasters and associated impacts. In the last thirty years in Nepal, over USD1 billion have been lost through climate related natural disasters, an average of nearly NPR2500 million per year.
