WHITHER ACAP ?

WHITHER ACAP? TIME TO CONSIDER NEW CONSERVATION MANAGEMENT REGIME AND MODALITY IN NEPAL?

A recent cabinet decision by the government to make an alternative arrangement for the management of the Annapurna Conservation Area Project has caused a stir among Nepal’s top conservationists. The conservation area was previously looked after by the National Trust for Nature Conservation. 

The objective of this program was to deliberate two key questions:

  1. What might be the most appropriate management regime for conservation areas in Nepal? Deliberation on the pros/cons and possible choices for Nepal.
  2. How should one proceed in designing the new governance framework for ACAP? Deliberation on modality, associated ground work and timeline.
