This report describes the findings of a vulnerability and impact assessment of both climatic and non-climatic change on ecosystem services and community livelihoods in the Panchase Mountain Ecological Region in Nepal’s Western Development Region. Among the key findings are expected temperature rise and unpredictable changes in the nature of precipitation that could alter the behaviour of local ecosystems, affecting their ability to provide basic food, water, energy and livelihood services, and threatening the survival of some species. It identifies and recommends ways to implement ecosystem-based adaptation options to reduce ecosystem vulnerability to climate change and enhance resilience of vulnerable communities at the ward and sub-watershed levels
