CauseBecause Citizen Bureau, December 21, 2010
The Kailash-Mansarovar landscape, also known as Kang Rinpoche and Kailasa Parvata, is about to see a positive change. India, China and Nepal, the countries across which the Kailash's boundaries are spread, have chalked out comprehensive conservation and sustainable development plans for the mountain range.

A draft proposal for regional cooperation framework for conservation and sustainable development of the Kailash landscape was endorsed by representatives of the three countries on December 19, at a workshop in Nagarkot, a hill station near Kathmandu, Nepal.

The framework is expected to facilitate trans-boundary biodiversity, as well as environmental and cultural conservation through scientific and technical cooperation, read a media brief issued by International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD).

Enhancing biodiversity and cultural conservation, ecosystem management, sustainable development and climate change adaptation will be the primary focus of the framework. The framework is also expected to facilitate information exchange among the member countries and help in the development and management of environment-focused knowledge base.
