Climate Change, Food Security and Fresh Water in Nepal’s Mountain Regions

The food security situation is critical in Nepal and is even more serious in the mountains and hills of the mid- and far-west country. Climate Change has direct and severe impacts on food security and poses a serious threat to the natural freshwater regime of mountains, with potentially far-reaching consequences for mountain communities and millions of people downstream. The Mountain Action Plan connects issues of climate justice, food security, mountain disaster and rural development.
