Koshi Province Bans Concrete Structures in Forests

Koshi Province

In an effort to preserve the natural environment, the Koshi provincial government has banned the construction of concrete structures within forest areas. The new regulation was approved during a cabinet meeting on Saturday.

The decision addresses concerns about the increasing use of cement for graveyards, religious buildings, and even forest offices within protected areas. This often occurs along major roadways like the East-West highway.

“The use of cement and concrete structures disrupts the natural state of our forests,” stated Bishal Ghimire, secretary of the Ministry of Forests. “This legislation protects the integrity of our valuable forest ecosystems.”

The ban means that new graveyards within forest areas cannot use concrete. Additionally, it prohibits the construction of religious buildings and forest offices that utilize concrete or cement.
