At the same time, President Bhandari expressed worry over the global risk posed by climate change. “We are facing the climate change crisis,” she said, adding that although Kathmandu is culturally the best place in the world, increasing pollution is taking a toll on human health. Our ecosystem should be clean and balanced, she stressed.
