This study will complement other climate change initiatives, in particular the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) project. The impact of the study will be to strengthen the capacity of Nepal to manage its environment and climate change through an improved, sustainable, institutional framework.Specifically, the study will develop local models through in-country assessments of downscaled national climate change projections and modeling programs for Nepal's three climate zones. In addition, researchers will develop a scaleable tool for community-based vulnerability assessment and action planning. They will also create village adaptation plans and maps in pilot communities, and will design training modules. Duration: Ongoing Contact: ADB
