KATHMANDU: Deputy Mayor of the Kathmandu Metropolitan City Sunita Dangol today said efforts for development would not be fruitful by neglecting climate change.

She put her view at a two-day awareness and orientation program for researchers, partners, and others including people’s representatives, employees, and citizens of the city organized here.

“Climate change is a global problem. Nepal does not have any role in it. But, it is enduring its impacts in the form of flooding, droughts, excessive and scanty rainfall, and excessive rising and dipping temperatures. This has had its impacts on the sectors of the economy, society, biodiversity, and tourism. There is a need to reduce risks caused by climate change, and respond adaptive to changing climate,” she said.

Similarly, the KMC chief administrative officer Basanta Adhikari and spokesperson Nabin Manandhar univocally said it was the main responsibility of all for adapting and reducing risks associated with climate change.

The program has been attended by people representatives, employees, and representatives of the partner organizations including ward members of the KMC.
