Economics of Adaptation in Water Sector

Posted on: 2011-01-01

The objective of this research was to apply stakeholder-focused economic analyses to selected water adaptation settings of developing countries. This research was carried out in the Rupa Lake Watershed, Pokhara, Nepal. The residents of the area primarily depend on agriculture and fisheries. However, the impact of climate change was observed in the lake ecosystem. Increased lake siltation, decline in agricultural productivity due to drought, erratic and short duration rainfall with high intensity and shortening of winter days are only few examples indicating climate change in the area. This research was conducted in partnership with International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED, UK).
