PDF File Size: 2.34 MB | Download   
Doti district is one of five districts of Seti Zone in the Far Western Region (FWR). The district, with Silgadhi as its headquarters (DHQ), covers an area of 2,025 km. Doti district comprises 50 Village Development Committees (VDCs), one Municipality, 11 Ilakas and two electoral constituencies. All rivers in Doti are part of the Karnali River system, however, the district is divided into three main watersheds as per the catchment areas of the Sanigadh, Seti and Thuligadh rivers. The district is also rich in cultural and religious sites and temples, with potential for religious tourism because it is a gateway to Khaptad National Park and Ramaroshan (located in Achham). The K. I. Singh Road runs for 65km from Syaule, Dadeldhura to Silgudhi, Doti and connects to the rest of the districts in the Far West. Doti’s population numbered 211,764 in 2011. United Communist Party of Nepal Maoist (UCPN-M), Nepali Congress (NC) and Communist Party of Nepal United Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML) are the major political forces in the district as per the last
election results. All major parties interviewed in separate meetings agreed that there is political power balance which leads to a consensus culture in development affairs. In mid-May 2013, the total number of registered voters in Doti reached 82,258. There are 12 Police Posts in the district. In 2011, the Doti Police registered 50 crimes, 11 of which homicides, 17 suicides, four public offences, and five related to women and children. Doti has a District Court, an Appellate Court, and a District Attorney Office, and a District Level Justice Sector Coordination Committee chaired by the District Judge and comprising of the Chief District Officer, security agencies’ heads, District Attorney, Nepal Bar Association President and representatives from civil society organisations. In Doti, women suffer from gender-based violence and domestic violence, gender-based discrimination in education, in household chores and in nutrition, as well as differential social and cultural norms. The literacy rate of those five years old and above in Doti is 56%, ten percentage points below the national rate. The discrepancy is much more pronounced among women – 42% can read and write in Doti, against 57% in all Nepal – than for men (73% and 75%, respectively). The Doti District Agriculture Development Office estimates that the livelihood of around 60% of its population is based on agriculture and livestock. Insufficient year-round employment opportunities in the agriculture and business sectors lead people to also rely on seasonal migration to supplement their income. Doti district has two hospitals (one government and one private), two Primary Health Centres, 10 Ilaka Health Posts and 38 Health Posts. Doti has one of the lowest contraceptive prevalence rates (24%) of all districts in Nepal, and less than a third (31%) of women deliver their children with assistance from a skilled birth attendant. Epidemics and diarrhoeal diseases are common in Doti. The sanitation coverage in Doti is 42%. Malnutrition remains a serious obstacle to child survival, growth and development in Nepal, and a priority target for government programs, especially such focusing on newborns, infants, children under five, pregnant and lactating mothers. About 8% of the total land area in Doti is cultivated, of which nearly a third (9,468 hectares) is irrigated. The total number of farming families is around 34,900 and the District Agriculture Development Office (DADO) has organised 7,638 farmers (3,755 men and 3,883 women) in 364 farmers’ groups. In five of Doti’s 50 VDCs the recurrence of acute food security crises from 2008 through 2011 was high, and in a further 25 VDCs the recurrence was moderate. The district is highly prone to landslides. Every year during the monsoon season, landslides triggered by rains affect several VDCs.
