Project » Biodiversity Conservation in Transboundary Landscape

Category : Environment Supported By : ICIMOD  Start From : 01 Mar, 2009 Till : 30 Sep, 2010

NCDC Ilam has been implementing ICIMOD funded project entitled ‘Biodiversity Conservation in transboundary Landscape’ in the Kangchenjunga Complex. The Kanchenjunga Complex is one of the richest landscapes shared by Nepal, Bhutan, India and China and a part of the Himalayan ‘Biodiversity Hotspots’, one of the 34 global biodiversity hotspots. The area/landscape falls on the important biological corridor in Kangchenjunga-Singalila Complex and also in The Eastern Himalayas, one of the globally identified hotspot. The area is unique in its topographic features and richness in terms of flora and fauna. Its north and south slopes are the Nepalese extension of the Singhalila range, which forms the eastern border of Nepal with India. As a consequence of wide altitude variations, these forests are diverse, ranging from magnolia (Michelia champaca), rhododendron to fir forest ecosystems. The existing forest provides habitat for different fauna and flora important from conservation point of view. It is one of the major corridors for wildlife movement forming a globally important biological corridor. Through the project NCDC has been supporting community forest users for establishment of herbal nursery, Dairy products production center, awareness raising on climate change and research on climate change and environmental services.
