Description of the assignment: Climate change and its adverse effects to the world has been a global issue and for Nepal, it poses huge challenges, especially the poor and vulnerable. Nepal is highly prone to floods and landslides. Recurring floods/landslides have pushed many vulnerable communities to a precarious situation. Nepal ranks fourth in the global climate risk index of the most vulnerable countries.
Considering the need for immediate actions, Ministry of Forest and Environment/Government of Nepal initiated Nepal Climate Change Support Programme (NCCSP) in 2013 implementing local adaptation plans (known as LAPAs) to address the most urgent and immediate needs in 100 villages covering 14 districts. The initial phase of NCCSP was implemented from 2013 to 2017. Continuing these efforts, in the changed federal context, MoFE/GoN has led the implementation of Nepal Climate Change Support Programme 1-Transition Extension and has supported the selected 14 local bodies of 14 districts in preparing and implementing climate resilient development projects in 2018/2019. During the FY 2018/2019, NCCSP 1-TE has supported the 14 local governments in preparing and implementing climate resilient development projects (CRDPs) in 2018/19. These CRDPs are drawn from the local government's own plan without being a separate parallel projects and mainly include activities related to irrigation, road improvement, water supply, and landslide control. DFID has provided the financial support to implement the CRDPs with technical assistance of UNDP.
