In #Nepal, orchid conservation is creating jobs for women.

As forests in the Phalung Valley in Nepal are being cleared, the pressure on local endangered plants is increasing. The valley is one of the “#Orchid hotspots” of Nepal, with many of species approaching extinction.

Local organisation Love Green Nepal has teamed up with the International Union for Conservation of Nature to train local people in growing the plants.
The project will conserve endangered orchids and their forest ecosystem and also provide women with an opportunity to earn an income through the cultivation and marketing of high- value orchids.

To date, 19 biogas plants have been constructed, along with a high quality fruit farm and a primary school. 6,000 mosques in #Jordan will have rooftop #solar panels installed. "In an already fragile region, subject to the whims of the international oil market and regional unrest, Jordan relies on #fossilfuel imports to meet around 95 percent of its energy demand. Insert #renewables." This innovative new move to put solar panels on the rooftops of the country's mosques could make a huge difference to resources in the region.
