Nepal Biodiversity Strategy
PDF File Size: 1.06 MB | Download   
The Nepal Biodiversity Strategy (NBS) is an important output of the Biodiversity Conservation Project of the Ministry of Forests and Soil Conservation (MFSC) of His Majesty’s Government of Nepal. The Biodiversity Conservation Project is supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF)
and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Nepal has a population of 23.2 million people, 48.5% of which lives in the Terai, 44.2% in the Midhills and 7.3% in the Mountains. The 2001 census indicates an average population growth rate of 2.27%, highest in the Terai and lowest in the Mountains. The economic well being of Nepal is very closely bound to its natural resources – arable land, water, forested areas, and protected areas. Tourism is the second most important source of foreign exchange for Nepal, after agriculture, and approximately 45% of tourists coming to Nepal visit protected areas, generating substantial revenue. Tourism will therefore remain central to the economic sustainability of the protected area system and the protection of biodiversity.
