सशंकित संरक्षणकर्मी

नेपाल सरकारले तदारुकताका साथ निर्माण गर्दै गरेको १ , ७९२ किमि लम्बाइको हुलाकी राजमार्गका विभिन्न खण्डमा सडक विभागको हुलाकी राजमार्ग निर्देशनालयअन्तर्गत विभिन्न आयोजना कार्यालयले सडक निर्माण गर्दैछन्। यहाँ चर्चा गर्न लागिएको विषय भने नेपालको बर्दिया राष्ट्रिय निकुञ्ज तथा भारतको कतर्नियाघाट वन्यजन्तु आरक्ष जोड्ने कर्णाली गेरुवा खोलामा निर्मित हालसम्मको लामो कोठियाघाट पुलदेखि पूर्वको झन्डै २.५ किमि वन क्षेत्रको हो जुन खाता जैविक मार्ग हो र जसको प्रयोग बाघ , गैँडा , जंगली हात्तीबाहेक अन्य २३ प्रजातिका वन्यजन्तुले प्रयोग गर्ने गरेको वैज्ञानिक अध्ययनहरूबाट पुष्टि भइसकेको छ। खाता जैविक मार्ग घाँसे मैदान र नदी तटसमेत गरी झन्डै ८ हजार ४ सय हेक्टर वनक्षेत्रको समायोजन हो जुन झन्डै १३ किमि लम्बाइ र १ देखि ६ किमिसम्म चौडाइमा छ। यस जैविक मार्गको झन्डै २.५ किमि लम्बाइ छिचोल्दै हुलाकी राजमार्ग अगाडि बढ्छ जसका कारण संरक्षणकर्मीहरू सशंकित छन्। र , हाल निर्माणाधीन सो सडकखण्डको दिगो व्यवस्थापनका निम्ति निरन्तर अन्तरक्रिया र गोष्ठीमा जुटिरहेका छन्। २०७५ फागुन १० गते बर्दिया सम्वाद समूहले बर्दियाका सबै

Sustainable Green Infrastructure: State and prospect for Environment Friendly Development

Infrastructure is the fundamental facilities and systems serving an area, collectively contributing towards means of commute to employment opportunities at a national scale. Every physical structure at our periphery is basically an infrastructure which eases our daily lives and contributes towards economic value. From residential to commercial buildings, schools to institutions, hospitals to airports, roads, railways, hydropower plants to waterways and canals are infrastructures. The construction and operation of infrastructures exert positive impact to the economy and wellbeing of people, in the meantime, it leaves its footprint to the environment. The impact of such footprint is accelerated with climate change impacts contribute towards disruption of ecological flow which induce human made disasters.   WWF Nepal advocates for greener infrastructure which serves the purpose for sustained time period having no or very minimal impacts on natural wellbeing including that to the us

Saving Biodiversity, timely actions required

Rapid infrastructure development while will help boost the country’s economy, there is a need to pay timely attention to the fact that such projects can also have an adverse impact on the country’s biodiversity Illustration: Ratna Sagar Shrestha/THT We are living in the most explosive era of infrastructure expansion in human history. Studies and records have shown that in the next three years, paved roads in Asia’s developing nations will double in length. As per Science Magazine, in the next three decades, the total length of additional paved roads worldwide could be 25 million kilometres – enough to encircle the planet more than 600 times. With Nepal having stepped into the federal structure, development of infrastructure seems more viable as the nation’s capital expenditure is expected to be better exploited through a check and balance strategy, which will hopefully drive the infrastructure trends towards prosperity. However, to achieve Sustainable Green Infrastructure
