At the beginning of the 6NR process, we challenged Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity to double the number of maps used from your 5NR to your 6NR. Are you on track to meet this challenge? We have exciting news for you! Using the UN Biodiversity Lab, and the global datasets available within it, we created 18 draft biodiversity status maps for your country.

This case study highlights Nepal’s effort to identify synergies among various biodiversity-related Multilateral Environmental Agreements (MEAs), Nepal’s Biodiversity and Strategic Action Plan (NBSAP), and national sustainable development indicators. It also highlights the role of Nepal’s National Biodiversity Coordination Committee (NBCC) in mainstreaming all biodiversity related conventions and biodiversity programmes within the national development agenda.
Sustainability of commons is one of the major challenges in developing countries. There are two distinct theories to manage the commons. The one is with the theory of Hardin where centrally enforce with strong governmental regulations and other theory is from Ostrom where local people can manage their own commons by policy of decentralization, self- governance and from own institution. The community forestry of Nepal is managing under the Ostrom theory based on several principles.
Conservation Education and Communication (CEC) has always been an integral part of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Nepal Program. The formation of Eco Clubs at schools, non formal education, students’ stipends, study tours, exchange visits and the dissemination of educational material are a few ways by which conservation education is taken to students. Similarly, quarterly newsletters, annual reports, radio programs, media tours and media coverage are a few ways by which conservation messages are communicated to the communities at the local, national and international levels.
State of Nepal's Birds 2010, produced by Bird Conservation Nepal (BCN; BirdLife in Nepal), aims to raise awareness amongst policymakers, the general public and conservation organisations of the plight of Nepal’s birds and the responses needed to help secure their conservation. It shows that, since the last assessment of Nepal’s birds in 2004, the status of the country’s avifauna has deteriorated. There are now 149 bird species considered nationally threatened, 16 more than in 2004. Human activities lay behind these declines, especially those associated with the spread of agriculture.
