Aracy Selvakumar - Blog 3: Mighty But Fragile: Sustainable Tourism and the Impact of Climate Change on Mountain Environments (GOV)

Post type: 
Blog post

My work in Nepal has largely been focussed on migration, however, recently I have become involved in projects related to mountain tourism and environmental sustainability in Nepal.

I recently attended and assisted with the International Conference on Mountain Tourism, Climate Change, and Earthquake in Nepal. The event and prior research I conducted, prompted me to think critically about what tourism looks like in Nepal and the issues related to protecting mountain climates- particularly how these two areas intersect.

Aracy Selvakumar - Blog 2: Dichotomies Abound - Early Observations From Kathmandu (ES)

Post type: 
Blog post

My post this time is about some little curiosities that I noted during my first 2 months here in Nepal, granted they may be obvious to some but they're just some things I thought about and considered. The comments made are my own perceptions of this place I currently call home and I also wanted to note that my observations by no means reflect on Nepal on the whole, rather they are Kathmandu-specific.
