NATIONAL CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACT SURVEY 2016

    June 22, 2017



The survey covering 5,060 sample households from 253 primary sampling units in 16 various strata representing three different ecological zones reported significant increase in draught, landslides and avalanches, and the appearance of new insects as well as new diseases. The survey also revealed that 84.47 percent of households observed significant decrease in the amount of surface water, with a majority of households in the mountain and hilly regions experiencing complete drying up of surface water as well as underground water. This is attributed to scanty rainfall caused by climate change. http://www.myrepublica.com/news/22350/
