Internship description


Environment Education and Conservation Programme aims at promoting sustainable rural livelihoods through improved understanding about use of, and access to local resources with particular emphasis on sustainable and equitable use of natural resources, while minimizing damage to the natural resource base on which those livelihoods crucially depend on. The main aim of this programme is to ensure that the communities are aware of the resources available to them, and make them able to manage these resources in a sustainable way.

The Nepal Himalaya represents the highest terrestrial ecosystem on earth. Its share of the world's terrestrial area is just over 0.1%, but it can claim over 2.2% of the global wealth of flowering plants, 4.2% of mammals, 8.5% of birds, 1.4% of reptiles and amphibians, and 2.2% of fresh water fish species, which is a proof for richness in biodiversity though it covers small territory.
