Food security is highly sensitive to climate risks in Nepal. Recent climate-related events, such as the 2008 floods and the 2008/2009 winter drought, have highlighted the potential impact of climate on food production, access to markets, and income from agricultural activities. However, the ways in which livelihoods and specific vulnerabilities are linked to climate have not been well studied.

and extremes) impacts on food security and livelihoods.
