Climate Friendly Technologies and Practices: Cases from Province Number 2, Nepal

Clean Energy Nepal has prepared this document by compiling climate friendly practices adopted in Province Number 2, an area that covers eight districts in the southeastern part of Nepal. These practices have the potential to be replicated and scaled-up to other regions nationally and internationally. At the grassroots level, local knowledge, technology and procedures have been used to build resilient communities and agricultural systems. Studies corroborate the effectiveness of these methods, which are usually nature-based, in combating the effects of climate change. Additionally, many of these practices also help with climate change mitigation as well by replacing the need for greenhouse gases emitting technologies. The publisher and author are not involved in implementing the practices compiled in this publication.
