Integrated efforts must for environment conservation: President Bhandari


BANKE: President Bidya Devi Bhandari has urged all to work for environment conservation, as climate change has become a challenge for the whole world. President Bhandari also stressed the need of integrated efforts for sustainable environment conservation.
Inaugurating a national workshop on ‘Environment Conservation and climate change’ at Nepalgunj on Wednesday on the occasion of World Environment Day, she urged the government to make necessary strategy to guarantee people’s right to live in a clean environment. “There is inseparable relation between nature and human kind. Hence, the government must come up with effective environment related programmes so as to keep the natural environment intact. It is necessary to launch awareness programme on climate change at the local-level,” the President said.
Saying environment is being destroyed due to impact of climate change, President Bhandari said, “We have common challenge to save forest and nature. We all should be together for its conservation. Time has come for action, not only doing it for mere formality.”
She said however that Nepal has been compelled to bear the consequences even though the country’s contribution to climate change is very low. President Bhandari appealed to all to ensure a beautiful nature for the future generation by protecting and conserving wildlife, plants and forests.
Preserving the environment is a common responsibility of all, the Head of the State said while noting that continuous discussions were needed on the issues related to climate change.
The county has accelerated power development and if power could be used for cooking, the impact of climate change could be lessened, she said. President Bhandari also suggested planting saplings including that of Bar and Peepal as it reduces CO2 emission. The President stressed on making the Chure preservation campaign effective.
Meanwhile, President Bhandari planted a mango sapling in the premises of the District Forest Division office. Present on the occasion were the Minister for Forest, provincial ministers, lawmakers among other officials.
Expressing happiness for getting opportunity to launch programme in Nepal and Bhutwan, World Bank Country Manager for Nepal, Faris-Hadad Zervos, said clear policy and plan of the concerned country was necessary as capital mobilization was not easy.
Likewise, World Bank’s Chief Economist for South Asia, Hans Timmer, stressed the need of investing on children by making special plan for human capital building. He added that WB was ready to collaborate for educational development of Nepal and Bhutan.
Saying the ‘Human Capital Project’ launched by WB to reduce poverty is new practice for the world, Finance Secretary of Bhutan, Dasho Nim Dorji, said that Bhutan is looking forward to the programme.
Some 200 representatives including experts from the concerned sectors, government officials and policy makers of Nepal and Bhutan are participating in the forum. RSS
