Under the United Nations (UN), Nepali peace missions have started the 'Go Green' campaign to reduce carbon emissions from fuel and use alternative energy sources, solar panels. Coincidentally, Nepal has launched a campaign to eliminate carbon emissions at a time when the UN peacekeeping mission is the first in the list of Nepal's largest troop contributors.

Now 'Go Green' campaign in UN peacekeeping mission

As part of the campaign, a 'Hybrid Solar System' has been inaugurated. "Hybrid Solar System" has been promoted in the tripartite collaboration of the Nepali Army, United Nations and America's Global Peace Operation Initiative (GPOE) during the Multinational Military Exercise Peace Effort-4 program involving 19 countries in Panchkhaal.

The UN has adopted a policy of reducing fuel and carbon emitting substances while keeping climate change in mind. According to the same policy, 'Hybrid Solar System' has been started in Panchkhal in tripartite collaboration. US Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Planning and Operations of the Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, Rachel Shiller, who is visiting Nepal, inaugurated the system.

According to the army, there are 100 solar panels in one location under the 'Hybrid Solar System' and 240 solar panels are being constructed in another location. The UN has been conducting peacekeeping missions around the world for a long time. This system is going to be operated by the Nepali Army for the first time. Similarly, Nepalese peacekeepers working in Rumbek, South Sudan have also prepared to use this system.

'First of all, I would like to congratulate the Nepali Army for being number one in world peace,' Deputy Minister Shiler said after the inauguration, 'This hybrid soul system has been developed as a flagship project in tripartite collaboration between the UN, Nepal and America. It will certainly help in making the environment clean. We want to make the UN mission environmentally friendly.

She said that the Nepali battalion serving in the UN mission in South Sudan will be able to use the hybrid solar system. "This project will replace the diesel generators being used by the Nepalese battalion in Rumbek, South Sudan, with hybrid solar powered generators," she said. It will help to reduce the cost. I would like to commend the United Nations Environment Office for designing the hybrid solar concept, the leadership of the Nepalese Army in Panchkhaal for pursuing this environmental initiative, the Infantry Battalion at the Rumbek camp in the United Nations Mission in South Sudan, and the US government for supporting this tripartite fund through the Global Peace Operation Initiative.'

She mentioned that during the establishment of peace in countries like South Sudan, the peacekeepers have to travel a difficult route when they need fuel, and said that the use of hybrid solar will reduce fuel consumption, reduce costs and be environmentally friendly. The senior officer of the army expressed his gratitude for the cooperation, saying that the start of this hybrid solar is an important collaboration between the Nepali army, the UN and the US Indopacum-Zipoi.

According to the Nepali Army, the power of the solar panel at Birendra Peace Training Center Panchkhaal will be used for the whole day in the grid line in the evening. According to the army, the solar project connected as an alternative energy source is important in the physical upgrading of the training center and will help in developing the center as an international level center of excellence related to peacekeeping. Nepal has been working in 44 different missions in the world since 1955.

Similarly, peace efforts are continuing in Panchkhaal. 18 countries including Nepal are participating in the program which started from Tuesday. The representatives and coaches of each country were training on Wednesday according to their respective responsibilities.
