Project Background

DFID is committed to reducing the climatic vulnerability of the poor and improving their resilience to climate change effects. This goal is shared with the Government of Nepal (GoN) and its development partners.

This project forms part one of a three phase programme that will support the development of climate adaptation evidence and learning, and activities to mainstream climate change into development work at the local and national scales. The work will design, pilot and communicate how to improve adaptive capacity particularly for vulnerable groups, safeguarding their livelihoods in the future and creating employment.

While the specific objective is to design DFID’s support for climate change adaptation in Nepal, the broader objective is to support the Government of Nepal in developing an overall framework for climate change adaptation which other international development partners can also commit to.

HTSPE Services

The design process will test a variety of options for implementation support, including social transfer and financial support programmes; mechanisms to protect assets from loss or damage; working with civil society; and promotion of low carbon livelihoods. 

Finally, whilst taking a bottom-up approach, the design team will also provide support at the national level, including capacity building; providing advice on national climate change processes; and supporting a government-led communications strategy on climate change.
