Environmental Graduates in Himalaya (EGH), together with Resources Himalaya Foundation (RHF), organized an hour long “Research Briefing” on 16 June, 2017. ‘Research Briefing’ is a new addition to the various knowledge sharing programs being organized at EGH/RHF. Ms Binita Pandey, EGH coordinator, opened the program through a formal welcome note which was followed by an interesting presentation on “Unveiling a biological haven: Research scopes in Kanchanjunga Conservation Area (KCA)” by Mr Naresh Kusi, Wildlife researcher, RHF. Mr Kusi gave an overview on potential research topics (focusing fauna and flora of KCA) identified during various research expeditions he had conducted in the conservation area from 2010-2017. He also outlined the detailed routes of the area and suggested the specific locations to conduct research on a particular topic. He further stressed on the need of conducting researches that will eventually provide significant contribution to the conservation of the ecosystem or a species.
Trainees of the recent GIS training organized by EGH from 8-14 June 2017 were provided with the certificate of completion by Mr Bishnu Maharjan (GIS trainer, RHF). Dr Deep Narayan Shah, RHF Board member, gave the concluding remarks to the program.
