Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources in Prok VDC of Manaslu Conservation Area, Gorkha, Nepal

Nepal’s temperature is rising faster than the global average, and rainfall is becoming unpredictable. Water resource is projected to become one of the most pressing environmental problems with high impacts from climate change in hills and mountains of Nepal. Drying up of water sources is likely due to dry seasons, irregular rains, and high intensity rainfall leading to high run-off and less infiltration. Rural communities in hills and mountains of Nepal are experiencing the impact on water resource due to climate change.
