Transboundary Working Groups (TbWG)


Landslide and Sedimentation

Sediment and Landslides Thematic working group (SLTbWG) of Koshi DRR Knowledge Hub aims at improving the knowledge networks among the partners working in the transboundary Koshi river basin by exchanging, sharing and working together on sediment and landslide related issues. Through this network, the SLTbWG further aims to better understand the causes and impacts of the sediment and landslides through scientific analysis and how they are impacting people, ecosystem and livelihoods of the Koshi river basin and propose possible solutions.
