The global trends of Carbon-di-oxide have seen a rise ever since the industrial revolution, so have the ill-effects arising out of such a rise. Surveys around the world have indicated that, like (Cook, 2015), an overwhelming majority of the scientific community now believes that climate change is for real and that its impacts are already being felt.

In the face of climatic variability, the Kyoto protocol (1998) declared profoundly that GHGs are major sources of global warming and environmental degradation and there should be an alternative for fossil fuel based energy. Since, then the hydropower is globally considered as win-win and green energy to tackle increasing GHGs emission from fossil fuel based energy.

The purpose of this study is to document the dynamics of adaptation practices related to sustainable usage of water engaged by women in their everyday life in a mountain socio-ecological system. Such system represents the ensemble of resource-use practices, natural settings, institutional practices, and social landscape.

Local communities are considered more vulnerable to climate change due to their low adaptive capacity. In Nepal, many adaptation practices have been carried out to reduce its impacts by different institutions, Community forestry (CF) is one of them. CF in Nepal is considered as one of the successful institutions of Nepal and good governance of it is considered as the pillar of its success.

Environmental change is shaping human migration now and will do so in future; specifically through its influence on a range of economic, social and political drivers. Development of the vision for how human population movements across the world could be affected by global environmental changes with a focus on the diverse challenges and opportunities for populations in originating and receiving regions is as inevitable as environmental change.

Landslide is one of the major type of natural disaster that causes loss of life and property in Nepal. The landslide risk assessment using GIS and remote sensing tools identifying hazard, vulnerability and risk are very useful for disaster risk reduction and management. The study was carried out in the Chepe river corridor using two landslide hazard models which were compared for the evaluation of the performance of the hazard model in the small area like a river corridor.

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.

Climate change is reality now and fresh water resources are under threats in this context. The assessment of impacts of climatic variabilities on available water resources is necessary to identify adaptation strategies. Simly dam a key source of drinking water for Islamabad city is likely to be affected by such type of changes.

Investigation of streamflows in high–altitude cryosphere due to the changing climate is an immense challenge under inadequate climate records. The current study compares the efficiency of rainfall–runoff model (HEC–HMS) and the snowmelt–runoff model (SRM) for current climate in Hunza River catchment. Landsat–5 & 8 imagery was selected for land cover classification and change detection using Earth Recourses Data Analysis System (ERDAS) Imagine tool.
