Connecting the dots across generations
In one of the oldest towns of Nepal, climate change is threatening a way of life that generations of people have come to accept. Panauti, a quaint little town is rich in fertile land with agriculture being the main occupation of the people. But over the past few years, the monsoons are shifting patterns and are quite erratic while temperatures are increasing every year, a symptom of global warming that many parts of South Asia are experiencing. Dried up and polluted rivers of Panauti has put the fishing communities in jeopardy.
Degradation in agriculture, forests, rivers, drinking water sources and aquatic health is impacting people but no effective strategies have been implemented yet.
