Resilience is defined differently in different contexts. When talking about environmental or climate change resilience,it is first important to understand what our vulnerabilities are, what level of threat they pose and what action can be taken to avoid or mitigate them. Managing land, water and other natural resources must be done scientifically, so as to make it sustainable. A lack of trees on a hillside can mean soil erosion and landslides. Likewise,the improper disposal of waste can pose a health hazard. That is why, in a country like ours, we must have an appropriate policy in place — with the participation of the people so that it can be implemented effectively — to build natural resilience.The environment is the backbone of sustainable development. Any development effort that a country undertakes has to be based on a sound environmental impact assessment. The principle of sustainable development carries three basic elements — economic, social and environmental. This implies that we must hand over the earth in the same,if not better, condition to the new generation. The environment should provide a living condition for humanity and other elements of biological diversity so that their coexistence is acknowledged,balanced and continued. At present, the Nepal government’s investment in environment, science and technology, and climate change adaptation is quite dismal.
