ENVIRONMENT

There is enormous need and scope of environmental projects in Nepal. Because of little environmental awareness, the area of necessity and opportunities is getting wider. People with environmental conservation as a top priority goal, you can get a breakthrough in business.

Hope

I am pretty sure the situation will change. Every project will be made mandatory to have a genuine and legitimate environmental impact assessment. Waste management in Nepal will be done in a more scientific and innovative way. Every vehicle on the streets will emit below what is permitted by National vehicular emission standards. All the industries and factories will install emission mitigation technology. People will start talking about renewable energy by minimizing the use of fossil fuels. There will be competition between organization to offset their carbon footprint. Businesses, institutions, and organizations will make strategies to save energy, waste and proper waste management. 

Environmental projects approach

Environmental problems such as improper management of waste, open burning, use of harmful chemicals and fertilizers, construction work ignoring environmental impact assessment, lack of emission monitoring from vehicles, brick kiln, and factories, water pollution are prevalent in Nepal. If we dive deeper into scope and opportunities in environmental issues, we could be unstoppable.  

To solve this problem environmental projects are necessary. Projects are necessary to hand over a healthy environment for future generation. Change can’t happen overnight so the action is needed before it’s too late. We need clean air, safe drinking water, and  sustainable urban planning.

Students, people of all age and profession, policymakers, the environmental authority should act fast. Legislations and directives should be passed to support and promote such projects. 

Environmental projects

You can find feasible environmental projects listed below.

  • Environmental education. Educate school kids and adults about the impact of human activities on the environment. Human activities here mean most common activities observed in communities such as open burning, improper waste disposal, overuse of chemical and pesticides and any other.
  • Training and Seminar. Provide training and seminars on importance, types and appropriate ways of composting.
  • Trash bins. Make an arrangement of effective and appropriate trash cans in public and highly crowded places.
  • Promoting greenery. Get involved in tree plantation, design, and maintenance of open space in the cities and towns.
  • Reduce, Reuse and Recycle(3R). Initiate and organize events to promote the importance of 3R. Educate residents about the importance of 3R and make them participate in appropriate reusing and recycling projects.
  • Hazardous substance: Dedicate yourself working with several stakeholders to educate and manage hazardous materials such as mercury, lead found in paints, light bulbs and other substance used on a daily basis.
  • Promoting Renewable energy. Since renewable energy is important to combat greenhouse emission, so it is important to work for providing consultation about installing solar energy, biogas, and other feasible renewable energy projects.
  • Pollution monitoring. To inform and aware residents about the condition of the air they breathe, you can initiate to install pollution monitoring devices in public places namely bus stops, hospitals, schools, offices, and shopping malls. The data on pollutants observed from the monitoring devices can be used to study the source, the impact of such pollutant and recommendation for possible remedies.
