Nepal is the world’s fourth most climate vulnerable country.¹

In a country where more than 68 percent of the population depends on agricultural activities for their livelihood, a suite of challenges, including lack of dependable weather systems and harsh terrains that limit farmer access to markets, sets a bleak stage in the face of increased high-intensity climate events.²

In response, IFC, with support from the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience, part of the Climate Investment Funds, is working to help Nepal overcome these challenges.
