Kathmandu - Big news for Nepal as Dr. Bishwanath Oli, a leading expert in environmental law and forest protection, has been elected Vice President of the Intergovernmental Forum on Biodiversity and Ecosystems (IPBS).
The election saw a total of 10 officials, including one president, take office. The organization is based in Bonn, Germany, and has 143 member countries, including Nepal. Dr. Oli has a long history of working to protect the environment and promote democratic practices in the field.
The IPBS is a major global organization that focuses on using science and policy to improve how we take care of nature and ecosystems. Their work aims to benefit both people and the planet in the long run. Founded in Panama City on April 21, 2012, the IPBS initially started with 94 countries. A year later, it gained official approval from the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) to provide key services.
This marks the first time that Nepal has a top-level representative in the organization, making it a significant milestone for the country. This election not only highlights Dr. Oli's contributions but also puts Nepal on the map in global discussions about biodiversity and environmental protection.
