CLIMATE AND HEALTH COUNTRY PROFILE – 2015
PDF File Size: 453 KB | Download   
Nepal has prepared a Health National Adaptation Plan entitled, Climate change and health strategy and action plan (2016–2020). A national assessment of climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation for health has also been conducted. Nepal is currently implementing projects on health adaptation to climate change and is taking action to build institutional and technical capacities in the area of climate change and health.
Due to climate change, many climate hazards and extreme weather events, such as heat waves, heavy rainfall and droughts, could become more frequent and more intense in many parts of the world.
Outlined here are country–specific projections up to the year 2100 for climate hazards under a ‘business as usual’ high emissions scenario compared to projections under a ‘two-degree’ scenario with rapidly decreasing global emissions. Most hazards caused by climate change will persist for many centuries.
Human health is profoundly affected by weather and climate. Climate change threatens to exacerbate today’s health problems – deaths from extreme weather events, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, infectious diseases and malnutrition – whilst undermining water and food supplies, infrastructure, health systems and social protection systems.
