Resilient Urban Food System: Assessing Climate Change Vulnerability to Peri-Urban Agriculture Kathmandu

Posted On: 2015-03-02

This report examines the vulnerability of Kathmandu Valley’s food system to rapid urbanization, degradation of the Valley’s land and water resources, and climate change, with a particular emphasis on the changing nature of peri-urban agriculture practiced in the Valley. It examines both the role that systems such as transportation, energy, food etc. and the linkages among various systemic components. Its focus on systems is appropriate because over the past two decades Kathmandu has become increasingly reliant on external systems, in-situ food production has decreased drastically while the demand for food has increased multifold. The climate change scenario developed for Nepal’s suggests that like rest of the country Nepal’s central region will also face uncertain climate in the future. As climate becomes more uncertain food production, supply and acquisition processes will be affected. The report also considers the scale of urban poverty as it threatens to exacerbate the effects of both rising external food needs and climate change.
