Kathmandu, January 21

Nirvana Chaudhary, Managing Director of Chaudhary Group, represented Nepal’s private sector at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland urging developed countries to address the escalating impacts of climate change in Nepal and similar least-developed countries. 

Speaking in a session of Alpine Economies at +2C, Chaudhary emphasised the need for global collaboration to combat the daily challenges of climate change, particularly in Himalayan regions and also highlighted they play a leading role in climate change mitigation. 

“Nepal has started going through the bad effects of climate effects. Our glaciers are beginning to recede. We have started experiencing the effects of extremely cold weather in the Himalayan region and extremely hot weather in the Terai region,” said Chaudhary adding, “In the future, there will be a lack of water flow for agriculture and hydropower, but there is also a concern that the new generation will have to face the problem of drinking water.”

Speaking in various panels of Alpine Economies at +2C, Climate Action and Future of Manufacturing attended by the world’s most influential political, business and cultural leaders, Chaudhary drew attention to the importance of the role of international organisations in mitigating the climate crisis with the kind of data, knowledge, information and support they can effectively use to reduce the climate crisis.

Three decades after Binod Chaudhary, Chairman of the Chaudhary Group and Member of Parliament, participated in the World Economic Forum, his son Nirvana Chaudhary also took part in the prestigious event.
