Sustainable Nepal: Research, Discussions and Ideas on Nepal’s Environmental issues

Sustainable Nepal is published by writer and photographer Kashish Das Shrestha. Having worked in the media since 1997, he has been regularly writing analysis and features on environment issues since 2008. His research and writings are mostly self-funded primarily by his work as a photographer in New York and Nepal.

Kashish Das Shrestha has worked closely with Nepal’s Parliamentary Committee on Natural Resources and Means on several issues and is Niti Foundation’s 2012 Renewable Energy Policy Fellow. His column Of This Earth is published in Republica national daily’s Friday edition, The Week, and he also contributes to the daily’s Monday Opinion pages.

In 2009 he published the 350NEPAL single volume journal with original essays on climate change by authors including Bill McKibben.

Kashish has also been the New York correspondent for BBC Nepali Service and has produced and hosted more than 3000 live hours of radio shows on Image FM 97.9.

His writings have also appeared on the New York Times Dot Earth and China Dialogue. In Grade 6 Kashish won a Kathmandu wide school competition for a proposal to curb the valley’s pollution. As prize, he got to personally hand over his ‘modern mass-transit’ based proposal to the then Prime Minister on World Environment Day 1994. He continues to believe in and pursue the idea.
