International Soil Conservation Day

National Land Conservation Day is celebrated in Nepal every year on the 24th of the month of Shravan.
To help maintain ecological balance by reducing natural disasters such as floods, landslides, and erosion, and to maintain soil fertility by reducing erosion and to protect infrastructure. This day was started as a commemoration of the establishment of the Land and Watershed Protection Department on 24th Shravan 2031 B.S. Along with the establishment of the department, service delivery was started by establishing the land conservation office at the district level. After the year 2031, the day of the establishment of the department, Shravan 24th is celebrated as "Bhu Sanrakshan Diwas".

Current situation
According to Nepal's National Land Conservation Policy 2075, 27 percent of Nepal's land is occupied by agriculture and 44 percent by forest and Bushes. Recently, there is a rapid change in the pattern of land use. Cultivable land is decreasing due to unorganized plotting and unrestrained construction of physical structures. Our weak lands, which have been tilled and cultivated since before, have now become even more vulnerable due to the movement of dozers and tippers to make roads. On the other hand, water-borne disasters are also increasing. It is certain that the land use pattern in the country needs to be extensively changed as the once agrarian country is now becoming food import-oriented.

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
