Local initiatives help people - and the environment on which their livelihoods depend – to adapt to climate shocks and changes. Unfortunately, local climate action is grossly underfunded.

The role of local actors in climate finance decision-making processes is often very limited.
The paper begins by describing the evolution of the GCF’s EDA modality. It then describes the framework for implementing the first phase of the National Climate Change Support Programme (NCCSP), a bilaterally funded programme to develop and implement LAPAs, using a framework endorsed by the Government of Nepal (GoN). Lessons are then drawn from this experience, to inform similar processes in Nepal and in other countries, and the GCF.

The report title “DISPLACED AND LANDLESS: AN UNABATED ORDEAL OF DISASTER SURVIVORS” focuses on the situation of the people displaced by two major disasters - flash floods in 2014 and the 2015-earthquake. Displaced families continue to live in indecent and undignified living conditions even several years after of the disasters. Hence, this report is an attempt to bring to light the situation of the people displaced by two major disasters in the country. The study also provides anecdotal evidences as to how disasters are impacting on land and causing ‘landlessness’ forcing affected people to migrate.
