General

The purpose of the project is to improve the local population’s ability to adapt to the consequences of climate change in two catchment areas (Rodikot and Darma) in the Humla District of Nepal. This shall be achieved through capacity-building in climate-related issues among the user groups in the catchment area. Additionally, support will be given to improve erosion control for enhanced disaster prevention. A further goal of the project is to rehabilitate 50 hectares of forest as well as to restore and protect ten drinking water sources. The project thus combines the development of climate change adaptation strategies with environmental education and reforestation while at the same time developing best practices that can be applied to other catchment areas.
