Title of the thesis “Effect of climate change/DRR on 3-5 years Tharu Children’s Nutrition Status in Nawalparasi ( ba.su. purba) Nepal” Introduction Study Area Caste and location: The study will be conducted in Nawalparasi ( ba.su. purba) district of Nepal. This community is endogenous ethnic caste of western Nawalparasi Rural Municipality Terai region of Nepal. This area consists of 47987 populations. Among them, 87.58% are Tharu, who are economically backward. Every year, this area is affected by flood and land cutting problems. Objectives: . To analyse Climate change/DRR effect of nourishment among 3-5 years (ECD) children. . To examine the linkage of Climate change effect and practices of adaptation in the study area. Literature review: Agricultural adaptation to climate change will lead to the development of new crops bred to survive in different climatic conditions or in new geographical areas. These developments may also occur as agricultural systems reduce their GHG emissions. It is important to ensure that crop breeding should focus on maintenance of nutrient content and absorption as well as improved yields. Research methodology: State of Problem Good nutrition has prime importance in the promotion of health, prevention of disease and productive and healthy manpower in the country. Malnutrition has been major obstacles for development promotion of nutritional status. The main reason for malnutrition is imbalance distribution and lack of health services and household foods insecurity. Besides these factors poor environment sanitation and Climate change affects such as land slide, flood, sedimentation, fire, drought and precipitation are obstacles development. Every year, many children die in the world due to the malnutrition and Climate change affect due to the less food, poor shelter, flooding and landslides in South Asia (Nepal, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Bhutan and Shree Lanka). Mothers have less knowledge and practice of mother, immunization, infectious disease etc. Among them, Climate change affect is directly related determination of nutritional status of early childhood development (ECD) children. Research design Mixed method (Quantitative and Qualitative): This study will apply mixed method (quantitative and qualitative). Sampling design All the items under consideration in any field of inquiry constitute a universe of population. My research is descriptive research studies.
