The Government of Nepal has made investing in irrigation a high priority, but there is increasing concern that climate change will affect the type of development needed, or may require new approaches.


The decision that was made was to improve the approach and methods for planning and delivery of efficient, effective, equitable and climate resilient irrigation systems. as well as providing an assessment of the current situation and practices, to review international best practice and climate projections in order to develop future guidance.


A framework was created that would increase the climate resilience and effectiveness of small and medium scale irrigation systems. This research is not only immensely important to Nepal, but also other countries that have similar issues around the world.
