The action pledge highlights three relevant activities:
NGO group in Nepal
The aim of this activity is to raise awareness amongst key development NGOs on climate change and development
issues by establishing a group of such NGOs who meet regularly and carry out joint activities. LI-BIRD will
assist the NGO forum/group in its activities.
Climate Change Information Resource Centres
The aim of this activity is to increase access to materials on climate change for use by civil society actors
and students thereby enhancing learning and sharing among civil society organizations on climate change
Building resilience of communities to the adverse impacts of climate
The aim of this activity is to reduce vulnerability of poor and marginal communities to
the negative impacts of climate change on agriculture. LI-BIRD aims to implement and strengthen climate
