Annapurna Media Network (AMN) and Confederation of Nepalese Industries (CNI) signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the implementation of the ‘Unity for Sustainability’ campaign on Wednesday.
AMN, a leading media house in Nepal, launched a two-year ‘Unity for Sustainability’ campaign which aims to collaborate with concerned stakeholders on climate change issues on November 24.
AMN Chief Executive Officer Sanat Neupane and CNI Director General Yadav Poudyal signed the MoU at the latter’s office in Thapathali today.
The main objective of signing the MoU was to reduce the impact of climate change in Nepal, advise people to use alternative energy for cooking, encourage the use of green energy in industries and to protect biodiversity.
Nepal has planned to achieve ‘no net’ carbon emissions by 2045.
The two organizations have also decided to join hands together to run a program on climate change.
On the occasion, CNI Director General Poudyal said that climate change is a sensitive and broad issue.
With the signing of agreement, the foundation has been established between the two organizations for a long-term partnership, he said.
AMN Chief Executive Officer Neupane underscored the need to raise awareness about the climate change in Nepal as it is an important issue not only for a person or an organization but for the whole world.
CNI Director Sabin Mishra and Chiranjibi Neupane and Subha Khanal Thapa from the AMN were present in the programme.
