Highlighting the fact that Nepal faces high impacts of climate change despite being a low emitter of the greenhouse gas emissions, Chitra Rekha Basyal, a student of Forestry urges all 3 tiers of the government to strengthen the resilience and adaptive capacity of vulnerable communities to climate risks and hazards.
According to Pooja Bhusal, 21, from Province 5, deforestation is one of the most critical environmental issues which need urgent action. Its causes are soil erosion, increase in greenhouse gases whereas its consequences are floods and even outbreak of diseases like malaria. Hence, she highlights the need of awareness campaigns, afforestation and compensation.

NYCCC has also played important role in enhancing the capacity of youths of which some motivated youths were successful in forming the NYCA chapters in their respective districts. Now, NYCA runs throughout Nepal with its fourteen regional chapters in six provinces. 300+ youths are directly engaged with NYCA as Climate Leaders of Nepal. National Youth Conference is a flagship program of NYCA. Now, amid the pandemic, we are bringing you the 7th edition of the National Youth Conference on Climate Change on a virtual platform.👨💻👩💻

Through this video, our network coordinator Ms. Shreya K.C. sheds light on three important things about this day.👇
1. 🤷♀️Why are we celebrating a day just for the awareness on food loss and waste?
2. Why is it important to reduce food loss and waste?🤔
3. How reducing food loss and waste helps us to contribute in achieving the landmark Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) including SDG 13: Climate Action.🌍🍀
Remember, cutting food waste is a delicious way of saving money, helping to feed the world and protect the planet.
Respect for food is a respect for life, for who we are and what we do😀

While living in the midst of a pandemic, let’s not forget that climate crisis is as much of a concern as COVID-19 with even more consequences to humanity.
Today, as a reminder, we young people call for a global day of climate action through a video of climate messages and demand for a greener future. As an individual, corporates, ministry representatives, let’s think and act considering each and every life on the planet of present and future generations. NOW is the time to act!
We live in the midst of a pandemic, but climate change is just as much of a crisis as it was before. As society is starting to open up in many places in the world, global emissions and resource use is rapidly increasing and we are running out of time. Therefore we call for a global day of action on September 25th. Anyone is welcome to join us. Activists all over the globe will be uniting for the first global climate action of 2020, and we need you to be a part of it. This is not a time to be silent.

सन् २०११,२२ सेप्टेम्बर देखि वार्षिक रूपमा ‘विश्व गैंडा दिवस’ को रूप मा मनाइने गरिएको छ। यस दिन गैंडाको ५ बिभिन्न प्रजातिहरूलाइ केन्द्रमा राखी वनमा उनीहरूको स्थितिसम्बन्धी जागरण उत्पन्न गर्ने लक्ष्य राख्दै उत्सबका रुपमा मनाइन्छ। ऐतिहासिक रूपमा, गैंडाहरू ब्रह्मपुत्र, गंगा र सिन्धु नदी उपत्यकामा बाढीमैदान र वन पर्चाबीच गैंडाको उपस्थिति सुरुवात भएको पाइन्छ। आज २,००० भन्दा बढी वनमा गैंडा रहिरहेछन्, केवल दुई प्रजाति १०० भन्दा बढी सङ्ख्यामा रहेका छन् जुन मुख्यत भारतको असामको काजीरंगा राष्ट्रिय निकुञ्ज (१,२००) र चितवन राष्ट्रिय निकुञ्ज नेपाल (६००) रहेका छन्।
नेपाल गैडा प्रजातिहरूको निम्ति घर मानिन्छ। नेपालमा एक सिङे गैडाको सङ्ख्या ६०० भन्दा बढी रहेको छ। गैंडाको शून्य शिकारको लक्ष्य प्राप्त गर्ने नेपाल विश्वको पहिलो देश हो। सन् २०१८ सम्म देशले गैडाको शुन्य शिकार सफलता सहित मनाउन सफल भइ गैडा संरक्षणमा निकै ठुलो भुमिका खेलेको थियो ।
Since 2011, 22nd September has been celebrated annually as ‘World Rhino Day’. This day celebrates the 5 different species of Rhino and aims to generate awareness regarding their status in the wild. Historically, the rhinos were distributed in the floodplain and forest tracts in Brahmaputra, Ganges and Indus river valley. Today, no more than 2,000 remain in the wild, with only two populations containing more than 100 rhinos: Kaziranga National Park in Assam, India (1,200) and Chitwan National Park (CNP), Nepal (600).
Nepal is home to the species- the greater one-horned rhinoceros with a total population of more than 600. Nepal was the first country in the world to achieve zero poaching of rhinos. Till 2018, the country has been successful in celebrating zero poaching year of Rhinos on five occasions.
