THE STORY:

Ktk-belt Inc wrote -

Our journey is to create institutions and capacity on the ground among Nepal's youth to fight climate change and biodiversity loss, and to derive nature-based livelihoods. We see a sustainable future as lying in the fusion of nature, design, technology, and livelihoods.

The eastern region of Nepal comprises one of the world’s 35 global ‘biodiversity hotspots,’ with more than 6,700 species of vascular plants, 180 mammals, and 800 bird species, including many that are endemic, or found nowhere else on Earth. This biodiversity is at threat from habitat destruction and fragmentation.

Between 1990 and 2005, the country lost more than 1.2 million hectares of forest, or one-quarter of all of its forest cover in just 15 years. This was due to haphazard urbanization, rural land grabs and the absence of viable livelihoods at the village level.  KTK-BELT (www.belt-project.org) was created in 2014 as a response to this, with a three-prong approach of providing place-based conservation, ecological education and green livelihoods through the medium of ‘Learning Grounds,’ essentially community-based micro-conservation hubs.

Our journey is to create hundreds of Learning Grounds in the eastern region of Nepal from Koshi Tappu Wildlife Reserve (67 m), in the plains, to Mt. Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), the third tallest peak in the world, and link them with a plant trail to create the world’s first 8,000-meter ‘Vertical University’ to teach and conserve biodiversity, heritage, and indigenous knowledge. To realize this vision, funding is needed to help create new Learning Grounds, build plant trails, train youth, safeguard keystone species, and build an indigenous knowledge portal.
