Issue Brief: Status and Implementation of Transboundary River Agreements on Koshi River of Nepal

Posted On: 2015-06-17

The Kosi River  is  infamous  in parts of Nepal and India, where the river - due to  its erratic and shifting course - has caused frequent floods affecting thousands of families and inundating several hectares of agricultural land in both countries. In 1954, India and Nepal signed the Kosi Agreement to enable construction of a barrage and embankments as flood control and mitigation measures. Subsequently a revised version of the Agreement was signed in 1966. This  issue  brief the  first  in  a  series  of  three summarizes  the  findings  of  a  study conducted by  the  Institute  for Social  and Environmental Transition-Nepal  (ISET-N)  on  the availability and accessibility of hydrological data and information on the Kosi River in Nepal. Specifically, it reviews the status and implementation of bilateral agreements on the Kosi River and assesses  the extent  to which  information on  the agreements  is publicly available.
