ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT - Of Industrial Development Around Lumbini, The Birthplace of The Lord Buddha, World Heritage Property
PDF File Size: 3.33 MB | Download   
Lumbini, the Birthplace of the Lord Buddha lies in the district of Rupandehi, which falls in the Western region of Nepal. It is a World Heritage Site (inscribed in the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage list in 1997 during its 21st Session) and is a destination for pilgrims and visitors from Nepal and around the world. As a World Heritage Site, owing to its cultural, spiritual and religious values, Lumbini is the pride of Nepal and has the potential of becoming a major source of revenue for the Government of Nepal.
The ongoing industrial growth possesses a threat to the archaeological remains in Lumbini (the Kenzo Tange Master Plan), and the other archaeological sites surrounding Lumbini, namely Tilaurakot and Ramgram. Both Tilaurakot and Ramgram are included in the UNESCO tentative list for inscription onto the World Heritage List. This unplanned industrial expansion also poses a very serious barrier to the sustainable economic development of surrounding local communities. In view of the threats to this particular WHS, UNESCO Kathmandu has provided financial support to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN Nepal) in order for it to undertake an environmental impact assessment of the area.
