Kathmandu city, Nepal
People living in mountain regions across the world are used to environmental change
and are regularly dealing with too much or too little water, both conditions often occurring within the same season or within short periods of time. Hence many mountain
peoples have developed a series of strategies for dealing with a dynamic environment
and have considerable adaptive capacity. However, most mountain regions are now experiencing
greater ranges and rates of change, that likely will stress and in many cases exceed the
adaptive capacities of the social-ecological systems.
