Biodiversity Ecafe
May 22nd marks the International Day for Biological Diversity designated by the United Nations. In recognition of the International Day for Biological Diversity, the United Nations had set 4 days leading up to May 22nd with different themes.
With the aim to promote Tunza EcoGeneration, aware people on bioversity, I have initiated a online campaign on "Biodiversity ECafe" where people can enjoy their Morning Home Quarantine coffee with our Biodiversity Facts, Knowledge and resources everyday this week. You can visit
Tunza Eco Network, Nepal
for daily updates.

May 18th : Science and Traditional Knowledege
Through science and traditional knowledge, we can understand what is causing the loss of biodiversity and find possible solutions to prevent it from happening in the future.
Introduction: Science, social science and indigenous local knowledge are all the most reliable sources of knowledge regarding the state of biodiversity, its complex interactions within wider socio-ecosystems, the direct and indirect drivers of biodiversity loss, and the effects of policy options. Science has been providing evidence, data, information and expertise to inform policy action for decades. Scientific knowledge also interacts with traditional knowledge and other systems to provide the basis for solid decision-making.
Resources: The fifth edition of the Global Biodiversity Outlook (GBO-5) helps bridge that gap between science, knowledge and policy-makers. Visit https://www.cbd.int/gbo/ to read Global Biodiversity Outlook
Video: Video interview with IPLCs: “What do you wish more people understood about traditional knowledge?” will be available at https://www.youtube.com/user/gybncbd
Saying: “To succeed in protecting nature, and ourselves, we need knowledge of both the problems and solutions to reach people at every level, and to inspire the resolve to act. In this ‘super year for biodiversity,’ GBO5 represents an important milestone on the fateful road to COP15 in Kunming, China, October 15-29.” Says Elizabeth Maruma Mrema, Acting Executive Secretary of the CBD.

Did You Know??
This Year 2020 is celebrated as International Year of Plant Health

Science and Tradition Knowledge Fact:
There is a tradition to apply Mehendi to hands, feet, hair especially on the onset of rainy season, festivals and rituals. Science says that Mehendi shows antifungal, anti bacterial and ultra light screening activity and using this reduces susceptibikity to get infected by germs.

    Hi Kushal Naharki, this is a mentor Sang Su Lee.

    Thank you for your active engaging in informing about the importance of biodiversity. In the past, before the advent of humans, the only rule that governs the biodiversity is strength. However, humans now are contributing so much. Therefore, it would be imperative to know about how biodiversity makes environment lively.

    Thank you for your reprot!

    Hello Kushal Naharki, this is mentor Taehyun!

    Thank you for your article on these various international environmental anniversaries besides International Biodiversity Day! The day after tomorrow is International Day of Biological Diversity! As people build highways or urbanize some areas these days, there is less space for life and naturally less biodiversity, so I hope this International Day of Biological Diversity gives us a chance to think about it a little bit more!

    Thank you for the report!

    Green cheers!
