Founded in 2000, Himalayan Nature is a development and conservation research institute, working for sustainable livelihoods of Himalayan communities as well as initiating scientific research on Himalayan biodiversity and the broader environment. It is an independent, not-for-profit organization actively working on emerging issues related to the development and conservation of natural resources, and sustainable livelihoods of people in the Himalayan region. Himalayan Nature is a science-based organization and takes an independent view of livelihood options provided to local communities and biodiversity conservation issues. We provide sound advice on aspects of social development and environmental management to government authorities and other concerned agencies. Periodically, we release statements to help improve awareness among the public and policy makers on the sustainable livelihood issues and environmental challenges.
