1. August was a month of transitions. Prime Minister Khanal resigned on 14 August after having failed to generate the multi-party consensus he had sought throughout his tenure.
2. Operational space was negatively affected by landslides caused by the monsoon, in particular in the Far West Region.
3. Most of the strikes and bandhs called by various groups during August were fairly regional in focus and effectiveness.
4. Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in August continued to affect mainly state actors and offices, public spaces and businesses – disturbingly, three incidences occurred at schools. During the month, a total of IED 21 incidences were reported across nine districts in the country, including four explosions.
5. Following on from what was noted in the July update, widespread reactions to the creation of new municipalities continued throughout August in different parts of the country1. This seems to be based on a feeling amongst parts of the civil society and the population at large that creating new municipalities is premature as the future structure of the state is yet to be agreed upon.
6. A number of new organisations advocating for issues of concern in the Far Western Region emerged during August.
7. On 12 August, the Chairperson of the Tharuhat Autonomous State Council (TASC), Laxman Tharu,
announced the names of a 31 member strong central committee of the newly formed ‘Tharuhat Tarai Party Nepal’ (TTPN)3 with the central demand to establish a Tharuhat Autonomous State with the right to self- determination.
8. The past two months have seen a worrying trend of journalists being assaulted and threatened, mainly in the Eastern parts of Nepal.
9. This year’s monsoon rain triggered flash floods in several rivers since June causing various degrees of damage to communities and crops located near flood plains or embankment breaches.
10. The District Disaster Relief Committee (DDRC), Nepal Red Cross Society (NRCS), Nepal Police, Armed Police Force and District Lead Support Agencies (DLSAs) coordinated well among all concerned partners and civil societies in responding to flood and landslide affected people across the flood affected districts.
11. Disaster Preparedness (DP) is taking momentum in terms of awareness raising and institutionalizing the DP initiatives that have been happening in a comprehensive way during past few years in Nepal.
12. The Food Security Cluster focused on follow up activities relating to prepositioning food items, and the work of the Assessment, Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting (AMER) technical working group.
