Researchers, policy makers, and development practitioners in China, India, and Nepal need to actively collaborate to improve and share knowledge on managing water resources in the Koshi River basin by integrating livelihoods and gender as core
The paper, written by an international team of researchers, presents the first detailed modelling study of all glaciers in the Dudh Koshi basin in the Everest region of Nepal. This blog post aims to provide a bit of background on modelling glaciers
ICIMOD’s first step: Address the water problem through rooftop rainwater harvesting, new ponds, and better management. The idea proved so popular that households not involved in the pilot began building the water systems themselves.
Nepal has a long history of farmer managed irrigation systems (FMIS) where farmers take sole responsibility for operating and maintaining their irrigation systems. In the absence of strong government intervention in the past, FMIS slowly evolved
The Himalayas: Upstream but Downwind
Efforts to understand the Koshi basin’s upstream-downstream linkages have the potential to change river basin management
Community-based flood early warning systems will help communities in the Koshi basin better prepare for a flood
Water is one of the basic necessities for life, and water scarcity is one of the most important limiting factors for sustainable development initiatives. Rural communities not only need clean water for drinking and basic hygiene, they also need
Rooftop rainwater harvesting system
Improved farmyard manure through sunlight, rain and runoff protection
A roadshow demonstrating solar powered water pumps was taken to several districts across Nepal from 14 to 21 October 2014 by a team from ICIMOD and Atom Solar, a solar company based in India.
Drip irrigation is a very water-efficient irrigation system. Water is dripped to individual plant root zones at low rates (2.25 l/hr) from emitters embedded in smalldiameter plastic pipes.

Check dams are small low structures built across a gully or a channel to prevent them from deepening further. These small dams reduce the speed of water flow and minimise the erosive power of runoff. They also promote the deposition of eroded
