In the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve, land cover change and climate change have led to alterations of critical habitats for many threatened species. These drivers of change also challenge the capacity of the reserves’ ecosystems to provide goods and services essential for human wellbeing.

This report documents the state of biodiversity, ecosystem goods and services, and the dependency of people on the ecosystems of the reserve. It also examines linkages between different drivers of change, identifies levels of vulnerability and the coping strategies of the surrounding communities, and recommends future strategies for adaptation based on the research. This report can be used as a valuable tool for researchers, development planners, and policy makers working on conservation and development in the Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve and its surrounding area.
