Work: Agriculture provides subsistence and employment for 80 of the population of Nepal,accounting for approximately 39 to the total GDP. The development of the sector iscrucial for the empowerment of those who rely upon it and for the national economy. SinceNepal is in Himalayan region, it has been badly affected by the Climate Change The sourcesof water are drying; new types of moths / insects are in existence; the crop cultivation timechanged, unexpected change in climate, unpredictable rainfall, draughts etc. are the result ofglobal warming Nepalese farmersfacing.Permaculture uses small and slow solutions because they are easier to manage than biggersolutions and they allow for the use of local resourcesleading to more sustainable outcomes.While this may not always be feasible- sometimes we need big and fast solutions to solvesome of society s greatest problems- this principle can potentially be a valuable tool forproblem solving.
