Environment and Sustainable Development: lssues in Nepalese Perspective in cooperation with Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES), Nepal. This is a significant theme of global importance that has generated a lot of debate, curiosity and concern over the issue in the Earth Summit (1992) and SMRC year of Environment (1992).
In ail national and international for resolutions are directed toward striking a balance between environment and sustainable development with growing realization that the global development crisis has correlation with regional and national development policies. Unfortunately, the vision of good earth and future prosperity of mankind nave been thwarted by increasing population growth, acute poverty and continuing threat to the natural environment and resource base. The concept of development, therefore, must be modulated to take into account for these three interrelated problems.
Sustainable development, in the Nepalese context, involves the refusal of the unworkable models on development and praxis in favor of, and respect to, the protection of critical natural resources and their enduring use-not just for today's needs but also for, sustaining an intergenerational cycle of life. Such a refusal, however, calls for a new perception based on a Just, participatory, and sustainable development encompassing the ecological, economic, cultural, social and political values, processes. and institutions of the nation.
