Physical and Socio-economic Aspects of Farming in Irrigated Scenario in the Context of Climate Variability: A Case of Khageri Irrigation System in Chitwan, Lower-Gandaki Basin, Nepal
23 Aug 2017

Climate change is a slow natural process that has been taking place in earth since its formation. The agriculture production is entirely dependent on precipitation, temperature and other weather conditions. The irrigation systems though constructed to provide supplementary water to the fields are affected due to change in precipitation pattern and volume. Khageri Irrigation System is chosen to study the climatic variability triggered changes in farming in irrigated scenario as it covers a large area of 3900 ha in Chitwan.
