Climate Change-Affecting Lives in Nepal

Climate Change-Affecting Lives in Nepal

Posted Jun 3rd, 2010 under Company News, Tourism News,

According to a report on English daily ‘Republica’, for the first time in Nepal, an entire village had to be relocated owing to difficulties arising out of climate change. Dhe, a village in Surkhang VDC of Upper Mustang with a total of 23 households had to be resettled in Thangchung in Lower Mustang. The village has been facing an acute shortage of water for irrigation over the last six to seven years. The irrigated land has reduced to less than 50 percent and animal husbandry (particularly goat keeping) has declined to 45 percent. The village’s relocation plan is being developed by World Wildlife Fund, Nepal. The new settlement is expected to be the first model village of climate refugees.

Happy Explorers

Your support staff in Kathmandu was great, what else can I say? Although we had some communication issues (mostly on my part), Kisan was always there to offer support. Thanks again!!!!!!
