About Me

Namaste! I am a lawyer practicing at the Supreme Court of Nepal. I specialize in Environment and Animal laws. With global warming and climate change plaguing Nepal and the world at large, I have been working to advocate for judicial, legislative and policy interventions to tackle the looming crisis with a deep sense of responsibility and conviction.

In my career that has already spanned for two decades since 1997, I have increasingly realised the importance of a robust policy formulation and its sincere implementation. In this website, I have attempted to document my endeavors which I believe simultaneously acts as a significant repository to trace and study the latest development of environmental laws in Nepal.
