Glacial Lakes and Glacial Lake Outburst Floods in Nepal
PDF File Size: 3.68 MB | Download   
This assessment of glacial lakes and glacial lake outburst flood (GLOF) risk in Nepal was conducted with the aim of developing recommendations for adaptation to, and mitigation of, GLOF hazards (potentially dangerous glacial lakes) in Nepal, and contributing to developing an overall strategy to address risks from GLOFs in the future. The assessment is also intended to provide information about GLOF risk assessment methodology for use in GLOF risk management in Nepal.
The methodology that was developed and applied in the assessment can also
be broadly applied throughout the Hindu Kush-Himalayan region. The assessment has been completed through activities carried out in collaboration with national partners, which include government and non-government institutions as well as academic institutions and universities.
The successful implementation of this project was made possible through cooperation between the World Bank and ICIMOD. Financial assistance provided by the World Bank is gratefully acknowledged. Additional financial support from
the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs for some of the project activities is also gratefully acknowledged. The authors would like to express their thanks to Dr Andreas Schild (ICIMOD Director General) for his continued support to this project; to Dr Madhav B Karki (ICIMOD Deputy Director General); Dr Eklabya Sharma (ICIMOD Director Programme Operations); Mr Berend de Groot (former ICIMOD Director Programme Operations); and Professor Hua Ouyang (ICIMOD Programme Manager Integrated Water and Hazard Management) for their support and guidance throughout.
