It concludes that in order for Nepal to become a resilient society, indigenous and local communities must fully participate in, and contribute their rich knowledge and practices to adaptation and resilience-building measures. Their participation is crucial for success of Nepal’s long-term adaptation plans and programs, especially in sectors such as infrastructure development, natural resource management and building the capacity of institutions. The report identifies a number of indigenous, traditional and local knowledge and practices and analyzes their applications for climate change adaptation and resilience-building activities. It is based on case studies of five different sectors – water, forestry, rural transport, settlements and housing and social institutions – and draws on examples from 18 districts of Nepal.
