Nepal has long existed in the shadows of neighboring India and China, but it could be poised to become an eco-friendly role model for the region. This week on Global Ideas, we take a look at two areas where Nepal is putting the climate first. Reporter Wolf Gebhardt visits an orphanage near the Nepali capital Kathmandu, where solar energy and biomass briquettes provide light, warmth and energy. Our second topic is agriculture. Nepal is focusing on organic farming methods. But much like in neighboring India, chemical-based fertilizers are becoming an important tool in feeding the region's growing population. In our background report, Michaela Führer explains the dangers of that development.
