Global climate change projections for Nepal and the Himalayas suggest signifi cant changes in temperature and precipitation, including increased monsoon (summer) precipitation and more variable and highly unpredictableactual rainfall patterns. The projections also suggest warmer winters and more frequent extreme weather events, with extended droughts between periods of intense rain.
