Dabur Nepal and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) have entered into a five-year partnership to promote herbal medicinal and aromatic plants from the Hindu Kush Himalayan region.
As per the pact, experts from Dabur and ICIMOD will bring to bear their significant resources and experience to establish an herbal garden at ICIMOD Knowledge Park at Godavari.
A press release issued by ICIMOD says the garden will facilitate research and development and act as a learning centre with demonstrations, hands-on training, and information sharing.
Dabur Nepal will provide the initial establishment costs, technical assistance, planting materials, and maintenance and ICIMOD will provide the space. The technologies, approaches, and practices showcased in the garden will help students, researchers, government line agencies, universities, and industries working with herbal medicinal and aromatic plants.
