[Ambassador report] Increased Flood and Landslide in Nepal in recent weeks

by Sagar Koirala | 25-07-2020 10:24 Comments 27 Comments recommendations 0 recommendations



Nepal has been facing tremendous flood in past few weeks. Despite the late monsoon, floods this year caused significant damage as compared to recent few years. According to initial assessment around 400 houses were damanged and property worth millions have already destroyed.Country has been hit with floods and landslides due to incessant rainfall, resulting in at least 132 people losing their lives in past 40 days in the Himalayan country. 53 have been reported missing and 128 injured due to the floods, according to Nepal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Authority .
Western Region is the most affected region with Myagdi as the worst affected district. Myagdi alone had a death toll of 27 in recent 10 days. Several districts like Sindhupalchowk, Tanahun, Parbat also witnessed considerable human and livestock toll. It is pretty frustating to see human beings exploiting resources for their personal benefit and not contributing much for the environment. This year the death toll due to flood and landslide reached highest number as compared to recent few years.
The flood and landslide has been mainly related to climate change, increased land encroachment of river banks, breaking sloppy hills for commercial purpose without analysing its impact on surrounding environment. We human must be environmentally conscious and must not drive development activity with considering its negative impact in environment. For every tree cut, we must plant 5 more trees . Lets protect and conserve environment.

    Hi Sagar Koirala, this is a mentor, Sang Su Lee.

    First of all, I really hope that you stay safe from the heavy rainfall. The world is going crazy right now, especially this year. China's biggest dam called "Three Gorges Dam," is about to be destroyed because of extreme rainfall. South Korea is also suffering from the heavy rain fall and flood. The weather is getting extreme...

    Green cheers~

    Hello Sagar Koirala, this is mentor Taehyun!

    I can't believe there's been a flood damage in Nepal. I hope things calm down really quickly. I think it's a disaster caused by excessive development. I hope you can explain why we need to develop it while thinking about the environment. I hope there is no big damage and take care of your health.

    Thank you for the report!

    Green cheers!

    Hello Sagar,
    It is sad news that people are dying these days due to the natural disasters like landslides and flood. Unsustainable development and deforestation are the major causes i think. I hope there will be implication of sustainable development.
