In this paper I start out by discussing the nature of the debate regarding
climate change. I then move on to review the evidence available on
climate change in Nepal. While the data on climate change is sparse and is
only recently being available, the extent of climate related impacts being
reported by rural households, particularly in the hills and mountain areas
is both extensive and quite alarming. One important aspect of the ongoing
climate change is the critical issue of local and even national food security
in Nepal. The latter part of the paper describes the evidence in this
respect. Finally, in the last part I have tried to explore the future scenario
vis-à-vis climate change for Nepal. The most worrying aspect is without
doubt weak governance aspects regarding climate change adaptation,
and mitigation.
