The Koshi River Basin: Reducing Flood Risk
PDF File Size: 518 KB | Download   
The Kosi River has a demonstrated history of changing river paths, making it a complicated and dynamic river to address flood risks. In October 2011, the World Bank undertook a rapid assessment of the 15 Kilometre section of the eastern Kosi embankment maintained by the Government of Nepal (include link to study). This assessment found critical infrastructure needing immediate repair and strengthening works.The immediate needs were well understood by all relevant stakeholders and, in February 2012, the Government of Nepal and Government of India agreed that the two countries will work jointly towards strengthening a 15km stretch of the eastern Koshi embankment maintained by the Government of Nepal. The Government of India has confirmed that the required immediate repairs have been completed and they are continuing to monitor the functionality of the embankments. The World Bank has been credited with its work in identifying the critical need of\ addressing the embankment strengthening and repair works.
