National Soil Conservation Day being marked today

The National Soil Conservation Day is being marked by hosting different programmes today.

On the occasion, the national day is being observed by organizing interactions and plantations in different places of the country.

The day has been observed since August 1973 to keep the ecosystem balanced, maintain productive potentials of the land by reducing soil erosion and preserve infrastructure.

August 9 (Shrawan 24) has been observed as a ‘soil conservation day’ as it also marks the establishment of the department of soil conservation and watershed management.

Nepal has been at higher risk in terms of environmental sensitivity, natural hazards and climate change. The country has lost lives and properties as well as faced environmental degradation due to the effects of human-induced and natural disasters.
