Environmental Management Designed to Build Climate Change Resistance in a Squatter Settlement in Nepal

Bimal Aryal


Climate change has become one of humankind’s most challenging global environmental issues. Urban centers, with their industries and infrastructure, produce greenhouse gases and therefore play a crucial role in climate change. In developing countries such as Nepal, the expansion of cities produces parallel growth of large slum areas, threatening all aspects of the quality of life there. This study focuses on one squatter settlement’s adaptation to climate change and proposes strategies for managing the enclave’s infrastructure to make it better prepared and more responsive to climate change.  Specifically, it addresses biodegradable solid waste management to generate bio-gas, carbon sequestration to reduce total carbon in the atmosphere and a control system for its frequent flooding.
