Case Studies of Indigenous and Local Knowledge and Practices in Nepal-Water Management

Posted On: 2015-06-15

This Case Study is a part of the main report and provides examples of ILKP at different study sites in Nepal. It supports the argument that scientific knowledge communities must work together to generate new knowledge and improved practices that are situation specific. Developing new synthesized knowledge requires the integration of both knowledge systems. It also requires greater participation of local communities who are particularly vulnerable to the risks associated with climate change. While scientific research on climate change projections and impacts are critical to developing appropriate adaptation solutions, the traditional forms of knowledge and wisdom they offer help reinforce adaptive capacity as a strategy for building resilience.

The report details the findings of a study conducted under the Mainstreaming Climate Change Risk Management in Development Program (MCCRMDP), a technical assistance initiative of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) in support  of the Government of  Nepal (GoN). This study formed a part of the Pilot Program on Climate Change Resilience (PPCR) currently implemented by the  Ministry of Science, Technology, and Environment (MoSTE), Government of Nepal (GoN).
