Bagmati Action Plan (2009-2014)
PDF File Size: 2.15 MB | Download   
The Bagmati river is one of the important river systems of Nepal with high cultural and aesthetical values. However, in the absence of planned and coordinated restoration and conservation efforts, environmental degradation and cultural erosion of the Bagmati river system has continued unabated. The Bagmati Action Plan (BAP) has been formulated with the aim to restore and conserve the Bagmati river and its tributaries in an integrated and coordinated approach. BAP covers the Bagmati river system from Shivapuri hill to Katuwal Daha. The Bagmati river originates at Baghdwar about 15 km northeast of Kathmandu in Shivapuri hill and its tributaries originate from different parts of the Valley. It flows by several important parts of Kathmandu, including the Pashupatinath temple. The river is fed by natural springs and monsoon rainfall. The Bagmati river system includes seven tributaries - Bagmati, Bishnumati,
Dhobikhola (Rudramati), Manahara, Nakkhu, Balkhu and Tukucha (Ichhumati) rivers and the five sub-tributaries Godavari, Hanumate, Sangla, Mahadev and Kodku Khola.

The environmental degradation of the river system has accelerated due to increase in unplanned urbanization of the Kathmandu valley. At present, the river has been used as dumping sites for all types of wastes. To combat the present situation, many organizations are working in Bagmati with number of good programmes such as clean up campaigns, plantation, awareness programmes etc. However, these initiatives did not produce significant impacts except generating public awareness to some extent. Therefore, National Trust for
Nature Conservation (NTNC) has taken the initiative for the preparation of the Bagmati Action Plan. The plan is a comprehensive document that includes all the programmes and activities to be carried out at different locations and at
different time interval. This plan has also identified the potential
organizations working in the Bagmati river.
