There is a very high uncertainty in the future climate change in the Himalayas and few studies has been carried out towards predicting future climate scenario in the Nepal Himalayas. In this study, climate change projection has been carried out for the Marsyangdi River Basin in the Nepal Himalaya which is focused on quantifying impacts of climate change with meteorological parameters (temperature and precipitation) for the future period, based on the outputs from fifth assessment report of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The study makes use of CanESM2 dataset which are statistically downscaled using statistical downscaling model (SDSM). Climate projections are available for three representative concentration pathways (RCPs) namely RCP 2.6, RCP 4.5 and RCP 8.5 for up to 2100.
