WWG proposed to become N-BON during ‘Preparatory Workshop for 2012 Jeju World Conservation Congress’.

  • A motion ‘Establishment and Promotion of the AP-BON’ successfully passed by AP-BON of which WWG is a co-sponsor.
highlights of the motion
Highlights of the motion
  • Acknowledging that biodiversity is very important for economic, social and sustainable development
  • Acknowledging that observation and monitoring of the status of nature in biodiversity and ecosystem services are among the key tools in designing and implementing successful interventions toward conservation and sustainability
  • Acknowledging the integration of current activities on biodiversity observation in the Asia-Pacific region as one of the key activities in valuing and conserving biodiversity
  • Understanding that regional BON is being integrated from the national level BON activities including such countries as Japan (J-BON), the Republic of Korea (K-BON), Nepal (N-BON) and Bangladesh (B-BON) and that establishments of similar BON activities are being encouraged in other countries in Asia-Pacific Region

WWG’s N-BON Activities
  • WWG along with IUCN Nepal and Ministry of Forest and Soil Conservation of Nepal performed biodiversity observation in form of assessing climate change impact on flora and fauna in PAs of Nepal those lie within Langtang Himalayan Range.
  • They were Parsa Wildlife Reserve in lowland, Shivapuri-Nagarjuna National Park in mid hill and Langtang National Park in highland by interacting with people of buffer zone area.
  • Some of the observation highlights:
  • Decrease in crop production upto 75%
  • Native plants displaced
  • Migratory birds visiting this area noticeably decreased
  • Shift in frequency of faunas from lowland to upland
future biodiversity observations
Future biodiversity observations
  • Proposed protected areas for this initiation include international convention enlisted sites like Ramsar sites and World heritage sites
  • Study in remaining PAs: 8 National Parks, 2 Wildlife Reserves, 5 Conservation Areas and 1 Hunting Reserve along with 9 Ramsar sites of which 5 are inside the National Parks and 3 World Heritage sites, making a total of 24 sites
