Climate change adaptation cannot take place in isolation, but needs to be integrated with community development in a sustainable manner

When monsoon arrives on time, nobody feels happier and more liberated than the farmer. This year, however, the late arrival of monsoon around the country has left the farmers anxious and troubled. In the last couple of years, the Nepal government has also developed several programmes to tackle climate change such as National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA), Local Adaptation Plan of Action (LAPA), and Pilot Project for Climate Resilience (PPCR). These are million dollar programmes developed with the support of international donors. In addition to these, many NGOs are running adaptation projects to help farmers and communities adapt to the impacts of climate change. But, how much of these programs and support mechanisms are actually reaching the most vulnerable communities and poor farmers who are, in fact, the ones who need the most help?
