In Nepal, climate change is responsible for a drastic, yet often erratic, changes in seasonal water availability, resulting in drought conditions during the dry season and increased flooding during monsoon. This impacts the ability of farmers to plan ahead. Coupled with increased temperatures these changes lowers crop yields and increase diseases and pests. To better manage climate change impacts, USAID supports targeted communities to improve resilience through protecting natural resources, adopting new agricultural practices, strengthening local government capacity to mobilize resources, and developing local adaptation planning and tools.
