Start Date: December 1, 2012
End Date: March 31, 2013
Donor(s): United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security(UNU-EHS)
Budget: NRs. 2,102,850 (£15,000.00)


The primary aim of the initiative was to illicit different loss and damage exposures to both climate variability and longer-term climatic change. In doing so, IDS Nepal filled knowledge gaps concerning physical, geographic, and crosscutting issues related to loss and damages from climate change. The project entailed fieldwork and data collection in the VDCs of Jogidhaha and Hadya, both affected by floods.
