Climate change remains a continuous threat to Nepal making it the fourth-most vulnerable countries in the world to it while adversely impacting forests and its different production systems and also affecting livelihoods of local forest users. WCN focuses on the development of the rural communities’ natural resource management and entrepreneurial skills so that forests are conserved and communities become more climate resilient while at the same time socio-economic status is enhanced. This program aims in promoting sustainable alternative livelihood to people living near ecologically important area including adaptation and mitigation to climate change in urban and rural settings. We support local communities to improve their environmental, economic, and social resilience against the climate change adversities.
WCN is working towards addressing issues of climate change, its adaptation and mitigation measures in Nepal through forest based initiations.
In the wake of the earthquake April 2015, Wildlife Conservation Nepal (WCN), launched an initiative that facilitated relief for communities affected by Earthquake in areas where WCN was already working.
