Green Business in the Himalayas

This year’s World Environment Day theme is “Green Economy: Does it include you?” The below video, from ANSAB‘s YouTube channel, highlights the community forest enterprises of seven communities in Nepal — all taking part in a green economy.

 

From ANSAB’s YouTube channel:

The video features ANSAB assisted enterprises in seven districts of Nepal involved in production and marketing of several non timber forest products including handmade paper, essential oils, juice and bio-briquettes. The video captures the enterprise initiatives and activities in Darchula, Baglung, Myagdi, Parbat, Dolakha, Sindhupalchok and Kathmandu districts of Nepal, and also includes views from ANSAB supported four entrepreneurs. The entrepreneurs took the initiative to establish Community based enterprises, which are currently creating employment opportunities at local level, and also preventing the locals to go to Kathmandu and Khasa (Tibet) in search of work. Along with the views from the government officers, local representatives, local collectors, traders and business persons working closely to the forestry and small community enterprise sectors; the video also captures the principles adopted by ANSAB to support local communities for enterprise development.

  1. comScore recently announced a milestone: 3 millionth tree was planted as part of its “Trees for Knowledge” panelist recruitment program. (link to http://blog.comscore.com/2012/04/comscore_plants_3_millionth_tree_as_part_of_trees.html)comScore introduced this program in 2008 in partnership with the non-profit organization Trees for the Future. For every qualified participant (link to http://www.relevantknowledge.com/AboutTrees.aspx) in research panels such as RelevantKnowledge, the organization plants a tree in a developing community in Central America, Africa, or Asia. This is a good example where a simple action of an individual online can translate into meaningful results all over the world.
