Vulnerability and Impacts Assessment for Adaptation Planning in Panchase Mountain Ecological Region, Nepal
PDF File Size: 5.17 MB | Download   
The Panchase Mountain Ecological Region (PMER) is a unique and rich ecosystem located in Nepal’s Mid Hill region and comprises the 17 Village Development Committees (VDCs) of Kaski,Parbat and Syangja districts.The PMER is part of the country’s Western Region (WR). With enchanting landscapes that offer spectacular views of Himalayan peaks including Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchhre,it is home to a diverse range of human cultures.
This report is a presentation of the tools and methods of a vulnerability and impacts assessment (VIA) of both climatic and non-climatic changes on ecosystem services and community livelihoods in the PMER. The assessment was conducted to develop information and knowledge needed for human-centred adaptation strategies in order to develop a sustainable ecosystem management plan for the PMER and its surrounding areas. These types of strategies would reduce climate risks and enhance the resilience of local communities and ecosystems.
The results show increasing trends in both observed and projected temperatures and the unpredictability of precipitation and extreme weather events. A series of ward-level vulnerability maps show a landscape characterized by mountain hydrology with moderate-to-high slope gradients and south- and west-facing aspects, moderately exposed to the impact of climate change.
Climate change is a complex problem that cuts across sectors and disciplines. The impacts also span administrative and political boundaries. Climate change impacts will make poor and marginalized people even more vulnerable and marginalized. It is certain that warming climate threatens the ability of ecosystems to provide basic food, water, energy and livelihood services. Because the interaction among climate change, ecosystems and society is complex and cannot be explained precisely, it is difficult to define the direction and magnitude of the local impacts of climate change. Reducing vulnerability to climate change,whether using EbA or another approach requires innovative and holistic thinking.
