Day 2 meeting with WWF Nepal

July 29, 2009 at 11:04 pm 1 comment

Today we finally met the team at WWF Nepal face to face. We had a long series of meetings with all the team concerned with climate change. We had great discusssions about the goals of WWF Nepal in relation to working towards the COP 15 conference in Copenhagen. We also finalised how Cycle for Change and WWF Nepal are going to work together over the next few months.

Over three hours we finalised our itinerary and i would like to thank two time Everest Sumiteer Dawa Steven Sherpa for offering his advice and support for the Everest region section of our trip. We also discussed our journey across Nepal into the Terai region. We were very impressed with the creative ideas the team came up with to involve local communities in WWF programs and increase awareness of climate change in the area.

Terai is an often forgotten area of Nepal given that it is low, flat and hot, and really doesn’t fit with our image of a mountain kingdom. But this area is being as dramatically affected by climate change as the high Himalaya. and we are really looking forward to getting down there and showing you what this beautiful part of Nepal is really like.

    hey guys, glad to hear all arrived safely with required bits n pieces intact. I think Id be enjoying a low,flat part of Nepal – it appears there will be plenty of mountainous terrain for you to fill your boots on up there, you psychopaths. Hope you’ve been practising mending and changing tyres in mittens – ha ha!! Good luck 🙂
