  • Congratulations to the author

    Congratulations to the author who has brought our the key issue of water (DTE, 15th Sept. 2011) which can work for the development of the people if it is used properly or can affect the peopel with multi challenges if it is mismanaged.

    The present situation and challenges of Bagmati River are very clear with supporting evidence. In spite of the worst situation still there is a hope to clean the Rive.

    This issue should be viewed in tow ways as:
    1. Surface contamination which affects the health of the people and environment.

    2. Pollution of the groundwater which permanently affects the water sources.

    The first point can be addressed with the community strategies & interventions with better coordination among government, NGOs and other service providers.

    The second issue can be handled by mapping the quality of the groundwater by deploying the surface geophysical tools like: resistivity.

    Hope these measures will help the authorities and people to come out of the present challenging situation of Bagmati River.

  • This was a very interesting

    This was a very interesting article. It contains a lot of points I have raised in my series on the Bagmati and the Bagmati Action Plan (BAP) published in the Kathmandu Post last year. There has been little news on the BAP since its official launch a year ago, this would be a good time to revisit its promises and call for renewed action.
