    WHY PROTECT WATER ?

     

    • The water evaporates and returns in the form of rain that feed lakes, rivers, and groudwater, etc., The cycle of water is an endless loop
    • Freshwater and drinking water resources are decreasing year by year!
    • The decline of forests, the resulting global warming conditions, and the disappearance of glaciers are at the root of this decline.
    • Freshwater is becoming an increasingly valuable commodity and causes considerable geopolitical challenges.

     

    Why NEPAL ?

    • The Himalayas is the third ice cap of the world. Water needs this cold mass to condense and fall in the form of rain or snow.

       

      • The Himalayas give birth to the six largest rivers of Asia, which cover a human population of nearly 4 billion people.

       

      • Nepal has 8 of the 14 summits more than 8000 m from the planet, 90 summits at more than 7000 m and 1300 summits at more than 6000 m.

      • The Himalayas have a major and decisive influence on the entire climate of Asia

    The earthquakes of 25 April and 12 May 2015

    • The highly seismic zone causes the disappearance of groundwater and accelerates the destruction of arable soils during Monsoon season
    • • The major earthquakes of 7.9 on the Richter scale in 2015, their hundreds of aftershocks and the scarcity of the forest between 2000m and 4500m, destabilize the geological and water situation of this country, of the neighboring countries and of all the Asia.
