Bhaktapur, July 1: Minister for Women, Children and Social Welfare Rhiddhibaba Pradhan has said there was no option to the fresh Constituent Assembly elections to give a political outlet to the country.

Inaugurating a two-day training on "Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security and Gender Issues" for women organised by the Youth and Small Entrepreneurship Fund here today, she urged one and all to help the government make the election successful.

The incumbent government has geared up for the election, she said and urged all to be confident of timely election.

She underlined the need of going ahead with concrete programmes to minimize impact of climate change and for sustainable development, and said the government was committed towards the empowerment of women. The government has recently brought a new policy on land utilization and it would help for the development of agro sector, she said.

Chairman of the National Cooperatives Development Board Keshab Badal said mountainous region in Nepal has been affected the most due to adverse impact of climate change and snowless mountains are its example.

Joint-Secretary at the Finance Ministry Krishna Prasad Devkota said rampant use of pesticides on vegetables, dusty and smoky roadways and unsystematic disposal of wastes have caused negative impact on public health.

Fund's Executive Vice Chairman and programme President Prof. Dr. Punya Prasad Regmi said Nepal is in high-alert zone in the world in view of climate change and problem of food crisis is increasing day by day.

Around 100 women from 559 cooperatives across the country are attending the training. RSS
