Minister for Energy, Water Resources, and Irrigation, Pampha Bhusal, has said tackling the impact of climate change is becoming challenging. Talking to the media after attending the inauguration tree transplantation of Indrayani Park in Lalitpur Metropolis-2 today, the Minister said activities of industrialised countries were the reasons for greenhouse gas emissions leading to global warming and Nepal-like countries had been adversely affected by such development. The programme was held to mark the Civil Service Day which is observed on Bhadra 22 in the Nepali calendar each year. "The activities of developed countries have led to climate change and Nepal-like countries are bearing the impacts," Minister Bhusal said.

According to her, Nepal is suffering the impact of the climate phenomena for which it had almost no role at all. "We are facing incidences of unexpected disasters as a result of climate change, the outcome of industrial and nuclear development," the Minister said, adding that soil erosion reported at several parts of the country had its implications on our daily life.

Talking about the landslides and soil erosion that occurred at Helambu of Sindhupalchok, the Minister said the incident ended with a great loss of life and property in the district, halting the water supply from Melamchi to the Kathmandu Valley.

On the occasion, the Minister thanked ward chair Rajesh Kumar Maharjan for the contribution to make the area resourceful. The Minister took time to call on locals to promote and contribute to building an environment-friendly society. Similarly, Energy Secretary Devendra Karki assured planted trees would be properly protected and insisted to develop environment-friendly infrastructure.

Irrigation and Water Resources secretary Sagar Kumar Rai stressed the need of carrying out tree transplantations in open space and spreading the message of eco-friendliness and civilisation.

Ward chairman Maharjan expressed his commitment to take proper care of the trees planted in the ward premises. On that occasion, more than four dozen different species of trees were planted in the park.
