Briefing paper on Grounwater

Posted On: 2015-05-25

Groundwater resources in the Middle Hills of Nepal play a crucial role in supplying domestic and irrigation water along with providing base-flow for rivers.  However there has been very little systematic study of groundwater, making it difficult to evaluate how water supplies and river flows may change in response to changing climate and land-use. To begin to establish an evidence base, two catchments in Nepal’s Middle Hills: Ramche Village Development Committee (VDC), at an elevation of 2,000–3,000 masl, with terraced farming and forested slopes, and Madanpokhara VDC which is largely below 1,000 masl with expanding commercial agriculture were investigated.  The study aimed to characterizthe hydrogeology of the catchments, assess water supplies and water usage and evaluate how resilient groundwater is to change.
