This briefing sheet presents lessons on the Hariyo Ban Program's work in Nepal on taking an integrated ecosystem and community approach to climate adaptation in Nepal. Major lessons focus on the value of integrating ecosystems in adaptation; the need to work at different scales and the challenges this poses; the importance of taking a multi-disciplinary approach; and the need to consider different time scales. The USAID-funded Hariyo Ban Program 1 is working with Government of Nepal and civil society on reducing threats to biodiversity and adverse impacts of climate change on human and ecological communities, in two high-value biodiversity landscapes: Terai Arc Landscape (TAL) and Chitwan-Annapurna Landscape (CHAL), complemented by support to strengthen the enabling policy environment at the national level.
