Energy & Climate Change

Access to clean and sustainable energy for all people is a prerequisite for a prosperous Nepal. Despite its vast richness in natural resources, Nepal has not been able to harness these in a sustainable manner in order to boost the Nepali economy. Although Nepal has made a negligible contribution towards global warming, climate change is undermining its already weak development efforts. Nepal has an opportunity to adopt a development strategy that depends on clean and sustainable energy, is climate resilient and is accessible to our current and future generations. The Energy and Climate Change Unit in CEN works to promote clean and sustainable energy, climate resilient planning and development through research based advocacy and awareness campaigns. CEN partners with international, national and grassroots level organizations and networks working in energy and climate change issues.
