UTMT was represented by its Executive Director, Sujana, at an international conference on ‘Honeybees and Honey for Food Security and Ecological Balance’ organised by the Asian Apiculture Association (AAA), HARDEN, WWF (Nepal) and Dept of Agriculture, Govt of Nepal at Kathmandu on October 24.
The conference gave us an opportunity to present our model to a distinguished gathering of apiculture experts from Asia.
Our work, with its focus on the indigenous bee Apis cerana indica and its pollination benefits for small farmers was appreciated widely. UTMT was given the Beekeeping for Rural Development award – our first international award by AAA and HARDEN. We’d like to say a big Thank you to all our supporters and members of Team UTMT, who with their hard work, commitment and dedication have made this possible!
