The Government of Nepal (GoN) is committed to responding to climate change risks and impacts through integrated policies and affirmative action. The NAP formulation process was established to build on the country’s rich experiences in addressing adaptation through the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA), and through it, to address medium and long-term adaptation. The process aims to assist Nepal to reduce its vulnerability to the impacts of climate change by building adaptive capacity and resilience, and by facilitating the integration of climate change adaptation into development planning. The overall objective of this synthesis report is to summarise the information presented in the NAP thematic and cross-cutting sectoral stocktaking reports. The technical synthesis report summarises the stocktaking reports that have been prepared for the nine thematic and cross cutting sectors. It presents relevant information on the impacts of climate change on thematic and cross cutting areas, and on vulnerability and adaptive capacity, and assesses sectoral gaps and needs for the NAP process. The report provides a glimpse of the most relevant data presented in the stocktaking report. It also offers a range of options for dealing with each element of NAP process and is based on the guiding principles of NAP process.
