Vulnerability and impacts assessment for adaptation planning in panchase mountain ecological region, nepal

Posted On: 2016-01-26

The Panchase Mountain Ecological Region (PMER) is a unique and rich ecosystem located in Nepal’s Mid hill region and comprises the 17 Village Development Committees (VDCs) of Kaski, Parbat and Syangja districts. The PMER is one of three global pilot sites for the Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA): Adapting to Climate Change in Mountain Ecosystem Project that aims to strengthen ecosystem resilience by reducing the vulnerability of communities and build local institutional capacities. This report presents the tools and methods of a vulnerability and impacts assessment (VIA) of both climatic and non-climatic changes on ecosystem services and community livelihoods in the PMER.

An assessment was conducted to develop the information and knowledge needed for human-centered adaptation strategies in order to develop a sustainable ecosystem management plan for the PMER and its surrounding areas. These strategies would reduce climate risks and enhance the resilience of local communities and ecosystems. The assessment of the impact of climate change on ecosystem services brings together top-down and bottom-up approaches to help prepare adaptation plans to ensure maintenance of the quality of ecosystem services.
