Lessons from the Barahchhetra community in the Koshi River Basin of Nepal
Poverty incidence in the Koshi basin (lowest 20% to over 50%) is higher than the national average.
The Basin’s estimated total hydropower potential is 22,000 MW. Currently, 8 hydropower projects in Nepal produce about 214 MW, nearly 37% of Nepal’s total energy production.
The Koshi Basin has 146 stations, of which only 3 are located above 3,000 masl (covering 42% land of the basin), suggesting huge data scarcity in the high altitude areas.
Forty-two percent land is above 3,000 masl and includes the world’s tallest peak – Mt. Everest (8,848 m).
The less accessible northern part of the Basin has low population density, the mid-hills have relatively high density, and the low-lying Indo-Gangetic Plains have very high density. The Plains also have a very high population growth rate, whereas
There is also large temporal variation in the water balance components in the Koshi basin.
Livestock is an integral source of livelihood in the Koshi basin. The number of cattle and buffaloes is estimated to be 13.5 million (8.7 cattle and 4.7 buffaloes).
as agriculture is the main livelihood source in the Koshi basin, availability of arable land is vital for the local population.
