Assessing Climate Change Risks in Rupa Lake, Pokhara, Nepal
Track: Climate Change
Authors: Sristi Silwal, Kamal Thapa
Our study delineated boundaries of Rupa lake watershed and its sub watersheds. Watershed areas were determined by tracing the drainage divides on the best available topographic maps and satellite image. Community questionnaire on status of systems, institutions and climate change was administered to determine social vulnerability. Similarly, a Bathymetry survey of Rupa Lake was carried out to ascertain physical vulnerability. GIS map processing was done using ArcGIS software.
