2015 was a year of challenge and a year of success for WWF Nepal. Although the earthquake left a devastating effect on people’s lives and natural resources, WWF Nepal, amid these trying times, was able to achieve some of its biggest conservation successes.
WWF's Work in Nepal
WWF started working in Nepal from 1967 when it launched a rhino conservation program in Chitwan. To keep up with the evolving face of conservation and environmental movement, WWF Nepal’s focus progressed from its localized efforts in conservation of single species in 1960s, integrated conservation and development approach in 1990s, to a new horizon of landscape level conservation encompassing national, regional and global scales of complexity in early 2000s.
WWF Nepal is focused in the Terai Arc Landscape (TAL) and Sacred Himalayan Landscape (SHL), including Koshi river Basin, and Chitwan Annapurna Landscape (CHAL) under the USAID-funded Hariyo Ban program. WWF Nepal works to conserve flagship and priority key species, forests, freshwater, and to mitigate the pervasive threat of climate change to communities, species and their habitats. Read more →
