President's Message

All around us, the signs of environment damage are clearly visible. Yet, almost each Government is considering this damage as a temporary effect. This is causing terrible loss to the nation. To avoid the loss, we must have meticulous and permanent planning and regulation. We also need to consider an important point that the ways of a developed country and a developing country will always differ; facing the environment damage is not an exception. The nature, however, does not differentiate between developed and developing nations. 
On one hand, the developed nations do try to honour the nature to the maximum extent while the developing nations are using the poverty issue to their advantage to further exploit the nature. Poverty is often quoted as the important reason behind this. On the contrary, we will have to admit the bitter truth that we are left poor because we are ignoring the nature, treating it badly, exploiting it. The earlier we accept this truth, the better able we will be to face the natural calamities. We cannot just blame the changing nature and the changing environment. While man is changing drastically, we expect the nature to maintain its innocence. Isn’t this ridiculous? It is outrageous to accept the nature to keep on gifting us while all we are busy doing just one act, ‘exploitation of nature.’ When are we going to understand this simple truth? 
The recent calamities including torrential rain, flood, landslides, cloud-bursting are all examples of nature’s catharsis living us all in nothing but pain. If we fail to preserve and to protect or to take good care of the nature, environment and natural resource then the coming generations will be deprived of good future. The nature and environment are closely related to the national or universal economic growth. Financial affluence will be possible only when the nature is preserved well. Caring for the nature will enable us to eradicate poverty. Considering this, we need to plan extensively and concretely to safeguard nature and to maintain equilibrium. On this back ground we need to focus on environmental education, Cultural and Wellbeing related to sustainable development and support to compliance of Agenda 2030.
