Description

Nepal is a beautiful mountainous country having diverse ecological and geographic location from plain tropical Terai to Himalaya with fragile ecosystem. In the course of time, Nepal has been facing various global, regional, national and local environmental problems. Population growth, fragile ecosystem, unsustainable developmental activities, exploitation of natural resources and climatic change are major environmental challenges for today’s generation of Nepal. Low level of public sensitization, weak institutional capacity, lack of appropriate monitoring mechanism of environmental problem and policy loopholes are exacerbating the environmental challenge in Nepal. Considering such situations, Youth Alliance for Environment (YAE) was formed to tackle challenges through research, evidence based policy advocacy, capacity building and community mobilization for the environmental conservation and promoting sustainable development.
