It is crucial that not only the Sherpa agency (or lack of agency) or understandings are examined but the institutional engagements and delivery are also assessed to practically, effectively, and sustainably address the challenges of climate change adaptation.
I would like to acknowledge the financial support received from the Wenner-Gren Dissertation Fieldwork Grant, the Harka Gurung Research Fellowship through Social Inclusion Research Fund in Nepal, and a research fellowship from the Association of Nepal and Himalayan Studies. Their generosity assisted in timely completion of my research. I would like to thank John Bodley, Barbara Brower, Nancy McKee, Late Pralad Yonzon, and Ram Chhetri for their mentorship throughout my research. This paper benefitted from the valuable comments by Jim Fisher, two anonymous reviewers and Donald Wood, editor for Research in Economic Anthropology. I take full responsibility for any errors that remain. Author is a Cultural Anthropology Lecturer in the Department of Anthropology at the Pennsylvania State University.
