Management of biodiversity and natural resources at landscape scale has emerged as a strategy that promotes conservation and natural resource use in sustainable and equitable ways. The Chitwan-Annapurna Landscape (CHAL) in western-central Nepal comprises all of the Gandaki River Basin lying in Nepal, and this ten-year Strategy and Action Plan are intended to guide the future course of conservation and development interventions in this river basin. The landscape ranges from the plains of the Terai a few hundred meters above sea level, through the mid-hills to Himalaya peaks over 8,000 m asl, with the rain shadow area of Mustang and Manang districts. The landscape has immense natural and cultural wealth, with high potential to contribute to the overall social and economic development of the country.

The Terai Arc Landscape (TAL) program was initiated in 2004. The first 10-year TAL Strategy and Implementation Plan (2004-2014) provided a touchstone to guide and address urgent conservation management issues and to tackle priority threats to make the TAL an ecologically functional landscape. This second strategy and action plan prepared by the Ministry of Forests and Soil Conservation will continue to guide conservation in the 
TAL from 2015 to 2025 by addressing persisting and emerging threats to ensure socio-ecological integrity of the TAL over the next 10 years and beyond. Their preparation followed a participatory and consultative process, and included review of past experiences and achievements.

The Gorkha earthquake of 25 April 2015 and its aftershocks resulted in tragic loss of life, injury, and economic damage in Central and Western Regions of Nepal. WWF Nepal and the Hariyo Ban Program partnered with the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment to undertake a rapid environmental assessment of the earthquake, which identified both direct environmental impacts, and environmental risks from recovery and reconstruction activities. This report outlines opportunities for many different sectors to ensure that building back is not only ‘better and safer’ but also greener, adopting environmentally responsible practices that promote healthy ecosystems for disaster risk reduction and natural resources for resilient development.
