ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE- NEPAL
Climate change has been hitting Nepal since long and the production of paddy was projected to decrease this year too due to several hazards like erratic rainfall, drought, landslides and floods which has wiped out 35,040 ha of farm land of country. To cope with inadequate rainfall, the farmers have now started to shift to the cultivation of water efficient crops like pulses. Similarly, Nepal government is also likely to release the resilient varieties of paddy by June next year to enhance the paddy production.
