Case study: Nepal’s changing climate & its impact on communities including people with disabilities

The purpose of the case study is to highlight the impact of climate induced disasters on people living in poverty who have much less adaptative capacity to respond to the negative and sometimes devastating impact of climate change. Despite cursory recognition of the impact of climate change on people with disabilities, very little evidence is available about how they are impacted. Even less is available on how organisations of people with disabilities have been engaged in climate change negotiations, policy-making, and programme implementation to-date. Our hope is that this case study on climate induced disaster that happened in 2021 can make some contribution to this under researched area by highlighting some of the key issues and recommendations we have identified.
