Prime Minister launches Greater Himalayas Transboundary Conservation Landscape initiative

As a part of the Sustainable Finance for Tiger Landscape Conference in Paro, Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay launched an initiative called the Greater Himalayas Transboundary Conservation Landscape, yesterday. The initiative seeks to promote collaboration among nations, tackle cross-border challenges, prevent species extinction, and support resilient mountain communities through nature-based economies.

The initiative is led by the World Wildlife Fund offices in Bhutan, India, and Nepal.

The Eastern Himalayas is known for its rich biodiversity and faces increasing threats from human activities.

The region hosts a diverse range of flora and fauna, including globally endangered species like Snow Leopards, Royal Bengal Tigers, Indian Rhinoceroses, and Asian Elephants.

The Prime Minister highlighted that collaboration is the strongest effort in securing and preserving the rich biodiversity of the region.

“We must work together, we must collaborate and the Greater Himalaya Transboundary Conservation Landscape brings India, Nepal and Bhutan together in one project with one goal to protect and preserve the biodiversity, the rich biodiversity, and the invaluable biodiversity of this Greater Himalaya region for us and for our future,” said Tshering Tobgay, Prime Minister.

The initiative will also work towards enhancing the livelihoods of the communities while helping secure rich biodiversity in the region.
