NEPAL, March 27, 2001: Requiring wood for fuel and new land for farmland, the Nepal populace has created a deforestation crisis. Between 1979 and 1994 forest cover decreased by nine per cent and as a result bare hillsides have created landslides and flooding. The report, with the alarming 9% statistic, produced as a joint endeavor by the U.N. Environment Programme and the Nepali government is a direct appeal to make a serious effort to check the rapid clearing of forests.
