Human is the intrinsic part of nature. Nature has an important impact on health, economy, lifestyle and every aspect of human life. Overpopulation and industrialization have caused severe negative impacts on our environment which have resulted in climate change, environmental problems and irrecoverable loss of biodiversity. The fact is not new to us that these have several negative effects on human health and economy. So, it is very important to reduce the impact and it is only possible by the good human behavior and social service with the vision of clean environment. Therefore, it is necessary that every community, society and whole nation should be competent for taking care of their environment. But, this completely depends on the economic, social and educational status of a person. Hence, a clean environment can be achieved only after imparting good education and socio-economic changes.
The environment is home to many living creatures. It is essential to keep environmental balance for the protection of all the living creatures and human beings. Increasing industrialization, agricultural revolution, and modernization has led to depletion of environmental conditions. This has undesirable impacts on the health of people and living creatures residing in such environment. Our countless biological diversities are on the verge of extinction. The problems of climatic changes are deleterious. With globalization and industrialization, there have been certain agricultural revolutions and it has impacts on Nepalese agriculture as well. Just like the adverse effects of agricultural revolutions, the chances of coming across the farmers who use pestilential and unwanted changes methods to grow crops, are high. From this as well, there are countless harms done to the environment. Therefore, it is necessary that every community, society and whole nation should be competent for taking care of their environment. With the knowledge of the alternative source of energy and putting it to use, can help control the environmental pollution and promote environmental health. For instance, in the agricultural sector, the use of Biochar helps increase productivity and absorbs the carbon too. So, this organization thinks it wise to encourage environmental conservation and furthermore, help in the promotion of biotechnology in sectors such as agriculture and energy. Thus, we have prepared the following measures to help us do so.
Sustainability in agriculture sector needs some radical changes because modern agriculture has severely impacted different aspects of an agroecosystem. In Nepal, people are still practicing traditional agricultural practices but they are very subsistence and need commercialization. Hence, by the use of traditional skills of Nepalese farming system with modern sustainable agriculture techniques Nepalese framing system can prosper. This way the livelihood of smallholder’s farmers can be improved.
