Millennium Fellowship Project: Project bajho
Bajho' means 'Barren Land'; in English, symbolically giving the meaning that climate and barren land are interrelated. The initial phase of this project completed with a waste management system in the university (Nepal does not have strict laws that require wastes to be separated before the disposal. However, the students of law realized this problem and thought of voluntarily taking the responsibility of making an efficient waste disposal system.)

The researched report is set to contain the analysis of policy related to environment and climate change, its analysis, implementation, problems and solution. Report made for Nepal is to be submitted to the Ministry of Environment and report consisting of entire South Asia to SAARC secretariat office in Kathmandu.
If the lockdown eases, the project's major motive of the waste management leading to mitigation of climate crisis will be continued.
