Integrated Model Development Workshop for the Koshi River Basin
A training for readers of sediment measurement in selected gauging stations of the Koshi River basin in Nepal was organised by the Government of Nepal
and environmental drivers of change at play, including climate change. The impacts of these changes challenge the resilience of natural and human capacities and
with the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology (DHM), Nepal and Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IITK), India, are conducting a state-of-the-art study on the sediment dynamics in the Koshi
Nepal is going through a phase of economic development, and consequently, a lot of water resources projects are being planned and constructed. Unfortunately, the country still takes the conventional project-by-project approach to development, which
Workshop on Integrated Modelling in the Koshi River Basin
With the objective of developing a framework for a regional flood information system to support disaster prevention and flood management in the HKH region, ICIMOD is working on the HKH- HYCOS project, being implemented in cooperation with WMO and
A community-based flood early warning system (CB-FEWS) is an integrated system of tools and plans to detect and respond to flood emergencies. It’s managed by the communities themselves and, if properly designed and implemented, can make the
Much of the water originates around the highest mountains on earth, a region often called “the third pole” because of its immense concentration of snow and ice, the largest outside the Arctic and Antarctic. Relying on a complex interplay of
By the mid-monsoon, flash floods of Bhote Koshi had already swept away more than 65 houses and placed 200 more at risk. With rains becoming heavier, further damage was expected.
and likely changes in the hydrological regime may pose a risk to future hydropower development. The changing probabilities and magnitudes of extreme events can place an additional risk
levels rise in flood-prone rivers, villagers are increasingly able to react quickly enough to save lives and livelihoods – whether they live in Assam, India, or the Koshi river basin of Nepal, or, in the latest upscaling of a successful
outlet, a team of glacio-hydrologists from the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) and Kathmandu University conducted a field expedition to Langtang valley from 29
ICIMOD provided the flood outlook for various locations in Nepal to the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology (DHM).
The use of remote sensing (RS) and geographic information systems (GIS) in mapping and monitoring glaciers can help professionals working in the Hindu Kush Himalaya gather data more efficiently while conducting research.
In the mountains, permafrost stabilizes rock slopes, moraines and debris-covered slopes. For instance, moraines consist of loose sediment often held together by permafrost. When permafrost thaws, slopes become more vulnerable to erosion. Debris and
ICIMOD is a regional learning and knowledge sharing centre of the Hindu Kush Himalayas searving Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar, Nepal, and Pakistan – based in Kathmandu.
