KATHMANDU, Feb 28: Minister for Forests and Environment, Birendra Prasad Mahato, has said that the government is committed to protecting the achievements made by various government agencies in environmental conservation. 

Addressing the inaugural 'UN Environment Assembly' that kicked off in Nairobi, Kenya, on Tuesday, Minister Mahato further said Nepal was ready to work together with development partners such as UN and WWF which have been assisting Nepal in nature conservation.

He shared that Nepal had achieved success in the decade-long project on 'restoration of ecosystem' with multilateral agencies including UN working in environmental conservation. However, the achievement has created a new challenge of human-wildlife conflict, Minister Mahato added.

Minister Mahato informed the global community that in the wake of restoration of habitats, the number of tiger and rhinoceros increased significantly in Nepal. Now, the Government of Nepal is focused on strengthening human-nature relations while coping with climate change, according to him.
