Use and Effectiveness of Wildlife Crossings in Nepal
© WWF Nepal/Hariyo Ban Program
The increasing trend of wildlife mortality due to road accidents are a growing concern in Nepal. This trend is severe along the highways that traverse protected areas and corridor forests. This study examines the use and effectiveness of newly built underpasses in Narayanghat-Mugling road that bisect the northern section of Barandabhar Corridor Forest (BCF).

The tourism industry of Nepal is focused on two major motivations:namely the Himalayas and the rich cultural heritage of the Kathmandu Valley. Because of this narrow focus, tourism has been centered primarily in Kathmandu and the cities, such as Pokhara and Chitwan.

The Himalayas are expected to experience many changes in temperature and precipitation due to climate change. Climate projections for Nepal suggest that monsoon (summer) precipitation will increase, especially in eastern and central Nepal, but actual rainfall patterns will be highly variable, both spatially and temporally. Extreme weather events are expected to become more frequent, with extended droughts interspersed between periods of intense precipitation. Winters are predicted to become warmer.

Wildlife crime is a serious issue in conservation particularly of the threatened species of wild flora and fauna globally. Several endangered species such as Asian big cats, elephants and rhinoceros are at the verge of extinction if the current trend of wildlife crime is not retarded. Despite various efforts to control wildlife crime, such crime still exist sporadically and in low volume in the country.

The manual seeks to present a best-case scenario, while also realizing that every situation is different and complex in its own way, very often requiring difficult decision-making on the part of the practitioner as to whether one should invest in longer-term, more comprehensive sub-basin or basin-oriented interventions or if one should instead implement more immediate short-term life or property saving interventions.

Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Environmental Considerations
© WWF Nepal/Hariyo Ban Program
When working on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) projects after disasters it is important to consider the environment throughout the project cycle. Projects with good environmental planning and management help reduce short-term risks to those affected by the disaster, as well as supporting disaster risk reduction and reducing exposure to natural hazards in the future, and hence decreasing household and community vulnerability.

When planning, designing, and implementing shelter and housing reconstruction programs, it is important for shelter and construction agencies to consider the environment throughout the program cycle for relief, recovery and reconstruction. This includes site selection, material selection and procurement, and reconstruction practices undertaken by agencies, communities, households and contractors. To support environmental integration, training and awareness raising are needed, along with practical demonstrations of good practices.

The earthquakes in April and May of 2015 have had a devastating impact on the facilities and infrastructure in the education sector. Structural Assessment data indicates that in the 11 affected districts outside Kathmandu valley, 67% of classrooms (32,000) are unsafe for use. As a result, a large-scale education in emergencies response is under way, providing temporary classrooms, emergency learning supplies and teacher training on psycho-social support and life saving messages to 14 of the most affected districts.

The Nepal earthquake in April 2015 and its after shocks resulted in huge loss of life, injury, and economic damage. The estimated value of damage and loss was US$7 billion, a large proportion of it housing. At the same time, there is a great opportunity to build back not only ‘better and safer’ but also greener, ensuring healthy ecosystems for disaster risk reduction and natural resources for resilient livelihoods and economic development.

The Eastern Himalayas are considered to be a region of global importance for biodiversity; the result of the synergistic interactions of the complex mountain terrain, extreme elevation gradients, overlaps of several biogeographic barriers, and regional monsoonal precipitation (Wikramanayake et al. 2001a). The distribution of the region’s biodiversity has been mapped as ecoregions directed along the horizontal axis of the mountain range (Wikramanayake et al. 2001b), and represent the ecological diversity from the Terai-duar grasslands and savannas at the base of the Himalayas to the alpine grasslands at the top, with the range of forest types in-between and along the steep altitudinal cline, from <300 m to> 4000 m.

Two massive earthquakes that hit Nepal on 25 April and 12 May, 2015 caused far-reaching social, economic and environmental damage. Thirty-one of the country’s 75 districts were affected leaving over 8,790 deaths and 22,300 people injured. A total of 498,852 houses were categorized as fully collapsed or damaged beyond repair and 256,697 partly damaged. The earthquakes triggered thousands of landslides that destroyed 2.2% of forest cover in six affected districts (National Planning Commission 2015). Material demand to rebuild half a million destroyed houses and other infrastructure will put much additional pressure on Nepal’s already stressed natural resources.

निश्चित संख्यामा रहेका घरपरिवारलाई उनीहरुको आर्थिक तथा सामाजिक स्तर अनुसार आफ्नो स्थान आफैं निर्धारण गर्ने प्रक्रियालाई सहभागितामूलक सम्पन्नता स्तरीकरण भनिन्छ । यस्तो प्रक्रिया सहजकर्ताका रुपमा कार्यरत स्थानीय स्रोत व्यक्तिको सहयोगमा वन उपभोक्ता समूहहरुले सन्चालन गर्छन् । ती घरपरिवारलाई सामान्यतया सम्पन्न, मध्यम र गरिब तथा अति गरिब भनि वर्गीकरण गरिन्छ । वन उपभोक्ता समूहलाई उपलब्ध भएको स्रोतका आधारमा घरपरिवारको स्तरीकरण भएपछी गरिब तथा अति गरिब घरपरिवारलाई मद्दत गर्नका निमित्त जीविकोपार्जन कार्यक्रमको पहिचान गरि कार्यान्वयन गरिन्छ । यस विधिले सामुदायिक वन विकास कार्यक्रम मार्गदर्शन २०६५ मा व्यवस्था भएअनुसार विपन्नमुखी जीविकोपार्जन सहयोगका लागि सामुदायिक वनको वार्षिक आम्दानीको ३५% रकम छुट्याउनु पर्दछ ।
