Nepal sets priority for climate adaptation, financing
Nepal is preparing to attend the 27th session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC on November 7-18. During the session, Nepal being one of the countries highly vulnerable to the impact of climate change due to its sensitive geography prepares to raise issues concerning the impact of climate change on the mountain region with much priority. Climate change adaptation, damages and losses, and climate finance are among issues Nepal will be raising with priority. Study shows that Nepal’s highland has witnessed the temperature rise by 1.8 degree Celsius when global warming is measured at 1 degree Celsius, the major consequence of greenhouse gas effect. Nepal will participate in the Session with its special priorities on issues such as Climate change adaptation and reduction, climate finance, specific issues of mountain region and financing for climate losses and damages, according to the Ministry of Forest and Environment. Similarly, the management and transparency of the commitments done by developed countries to provide 100 million dollar to developing countries to fight the impacts of climate change by 2023 will be put up. Nepal along with various countries in the world has submitted its NDCs report.
