In the area of natural sciences, UNESCO’s strategy consists in contributing to mobilizing science knowledge and policy for sustainable development focusing on a limited number of strategic interventions due to the fact that the Office has no dedicated human and financial resources in the area. Activities are mainly channeled through UNESCO Office in New Delhi.
Activities in this area focus on:
- The preparation of science projects that can help in disaster risk reduction, e.g. forecasting earthquakes and flood hazards
- Cooperate Nepal Academy of Science and Technology in preparation of national policy in science and technology in Nepal and help identification of a number of priority areas for research and development
- Advocacy for clean water through variety of events that link water and development
