Costs and benefits of flood mitigation in the lower Bagmati basin: Case of Nepal tarai and north Bihar

This paper presents the results of a systematic qualitative Cost-Benefit Analysis of embankment construction in the lower Bagmati River basin in Nepal and India. Using a unique Shared Learning Dialogue (SLD)-based qualitative cost-benefit that also begins to quantify impacts, it provides insights into the trade-offs among strategies that are similar to, but more transparent than, those used in a full cost-benefit analysis.
