Blackbuck (Antelope cervicapra) is a protected wildlife of Nepal and it is also listed in Appendix III of CITES. It is only found in Khairapur of Bardiya district of Nepal. Governemnt of Nepal has established Krishnasaar Conservation Area there to protect the species. This is the management plan of the area organized in two parts viz. Part A: Existing Situation, and, part B: Proposed management. Part A comprises Background information, whereas Part B begins with Chapter four (describing vision, goal, objectives and major challenges) and ends with activities/log frame in Chapter eleven.

Bijaysal Conservation Action Plan, Nepal (2018-2022) Nepal’s obligation to Convention on Biological Diversity includes the preparation of Nepal National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP) 2014-2020. One of the prioritized actions of NBSAP is to prepare and implement conservation action plans for priority species. The Bijaysal Conservation Action Plan is prepared by the Department of Forests to achieve the objectives set by NBSAP and is the fi rst conservation action plan for plant species in Nepal. Confi ned to an altitude of 100 m to 500 m, Bijaysal (Pterocarpus marsupium Roxb.) has a limited global and national distribution. In Nepal, this species is naturally distributed at the foothills of Siwaliks in Kanchanpur, Kailali, Bardia, Banke, Kapilvastu, Rupandehi and Nawalparasi districts. A few trees have also been traced in Palpa and Arghakhachi districts. The major threats to this species include low germination and slow growth; high grazing pressure; extensive lopping for fodder; harvesting of wood and extraction of Kino gum for economic purposes and medicinal use. Owing to these threats, this species is globally declining. For this reason, the Government of Nepal has imposed a ban on the felling, transportation and export of Bijaysal. Also, this species falls in ‘near threatened’ category of the Red List of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

Cabinet meeting under the chairmanship of Prime Minister decided to destroy the stockpiles stored at Armed Forest Guard Training Centre in Tikauli and Chitwan National Park  headquarter in Kasara on 2 July 2013 formulating the necessary law and guidelines. On the base of the decision, Nepal burned 4000+ wildlife parts for the first time in 20 years on 22 May 2017 that gave the message to world that Nepal will not tolerate wildlife crime in any form and symbolically called for an action to entire world to stand against the global threat the species face.

In many respects, wetlands are amongst the most productive ecosystems in the world. In Nepal, they occur in diverse ecological zones from highland in the Himalayas to lowlands of Terai. In 1988, Nepal became a signatory to Ramsar convention which highlighted Nepal’s commitment to conservation of wetlands. The National Ramsar Strategy and Action Plan (2018-2024) would be pivotal in addressing threats to wetlans and also guide wetland conservation in the ongoing federal context in Nepal. The plan envisions to conserve, wise-use or resources, restoration and ensuring benefits to local communities.

Changing climate and increasing globalization have greatly increased disease threats to wildlife as well as the transmission of diseases from wildlife to domestic animals and humans. Simple awareness and training are not enough to address the diverse wildlife health issues facing Nepal. Instead, we need to develop a comprehensive national strategy that can address wildlife health issues on a broad perspective including: amendments or improvements to current wildlife and health laws; education and training; identifying and addressing major diseases shared between people. livestock and wildlife; wildlife health issues in wildlife trade; and captive animal and metapopulation management. In light of this need, a three-day strategic planning workshop was organized to identify current wildlife health issues and needs, as well as strategies to address them.

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.

Introduction to the Species
The scientific classification of red panda is:
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Mammalia
Order: Carnivora
Family: Ailuridae
Scientific Name: Ailurus fulgens (F.G. Cuvier, 1825)
Sub-species: A. f. fulgens & A. f. styani

Groves (2011) recommended that these two sub-species should be considered two separate species.

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.

नेपालको वन व्यवस्थापनमा परम्परादेखि नै जनताको प्रत्यक्ष संलग्नता हुँदै आएको भए तापनि सरकारी तवरबाट यसको अपरिहार्यता राष्टिय वन योजना २०३३ मा प्रतिबिम्बित भएको हो । सोही योजना बमोजिम २०३५ सालमा वन ऐन २०१८ लाई संशोधन गरी वनको व्यवस्थापन गर्न अधिकार र जिम्मवारी स्थानीय निकायलाई सुम्पन प्रक्रिया शुरु भएको थियो । यसरी शुरुवात गरिएका सहभागितामूलक वन व्यवस्थापनका अभ्यासमा प्राप्त अनुभव एवं सिकाईलाई आत्मसात गर्दै समयानुकूल नीतिगत परिवर्तन हुँदै आएको छ ।

Landslide treatment stabilizes the landslide and reduces the adverse impacts upstream and downstream of the landslide. These activities include managing land and water resources upstream of the landslide and periphery area, stabilizing the slope within the landslide, protecting and improving land use downstream of the landslide, and protecting the area. It includes bioengineering techniques to reduce erosion, and water management activities to dispose water safely and reduce moisture in the landslide area.

The success of long-term conservation requires that interventions include entire landscapes because designated protected areas (PAs) are often not complete ecological units. This document reviews the existing conservation landscapes in Nepal to analyze the gaps and propose new landscapes.
