Nepal’s Model for Adapting to Climate Change
Funded by USAID and implemented by WWF, CARE, the Federation of Community Forestry Users Nepal, and Nepal’s National Trust for Nature Conservation, Hariyo Ban is an ambitious and expansive partnership designed to reduce the adverse impacts of climate change and threats to biodiversity. It is also a testing ground—of new ideas, deeply embedded community leadership, and the power of marrying landscape-level conservation with a granular, village-by-village approach. Since 2011, the project has focused its work in Nepal’s Chitwan-Annapurna Landscape and Terai Arc Landscape, identifying key climate adaptation and resilience needs, contributing to climate-mitigation efforts, and delivering unprecedented levels of integrated support for the region’s people and wildlife.
