Environmental Science


Environmental science is a multidisciplinary field that integrates physical, biological and information sciences including ecology, biology, chemistry, physics, mineralogy, limnology, soil science, atmospheric science, geology, engineering and so on. Further it provides an integrated, quantitative and interdisciplinary approach to the study of environmental system. Changes taking place in our environment in the recent years have become a grave cause of concern for all. With the growth of the population and the improvement of the living standard, the problem of environment is getting serious. People should be aware to protect their environment or they should not destroy it at least. There is only one planet earth, where human can enjoy their life. Many natural resources are not renewable, and some will take a long time to form. Many natural resources are not renewable, and some will take a long time to form.

The best way to protect the environment is conservation. Conservation is the philosophy and policy of managing the environment to assure adequate supplies of natural resources for future as well as present generations. However, if we neglect the protection of our environment the damage in the future may be irreversible, and the environmental and economic outcomes devastating. To enhance the awareness about the problems plaguing the environment, RECO-Nepal is actively introducing programs to help the cause in community level. We focus more on biodiversity conservation, scientific research on impact of climate change, conservational programs, flood modeling, internship for international students (Masters, PhD, B.Sc. students). Research are mainly based on geology (i.e. iron mining, brass), analyzing the samples of air, water, plant ecology, climate change, vegetation and soils. A clean and healthy environment is part and parcel of the wealth and quality of life that we desire for ourselves now and for our children in the future.
