Celebrations by ICIMOD

At ICIMOD, we celebrate this important day each year with a number of activities.

To mark this occasion, we are pleased to share with you a message from ICIMOD Director General David Molden, Mainstreaming Biodiversity; Sustaining People and Their Livelihoods.

In Nepal, ICIMOD is supporting the initiatives of the Government of Nepal. ICIMOD is participating in the Yarsha Festival organized in Ranmamaikot, Rukum district where ICIMOD is presenting a paper at a technical session organized by the Ministry of Forests and Social Conservation, Government of Nepal, that focusses on ‘Different aspects of integration of multiple institutions: Solutions for yarshagumba-related conflict in the Himalayan region of Nepal’.

On Friday, 20 May, ICIMOD also hosted a Knowledge Forum on this year’s theme featuring Bharati Pathak, General Secretary, Federation of Community Forestry Users Nepal (FECOFUN); Pankaj Prasad Raturi, Head of Department, Dabur Nepal; and Resham Bahadur Dangi, Joint Secretary, Ministry of Forests and Soil Conservation, Government of Nepal.
