Women became widows, children lost their parents, many lost their property and jobs, schools were closed. Youths suffered considerably during the conflict. However, since the end of the conflict, Nepal has made significant progress in its transition to peace. This research examines what does this transitioning context mean for adolescents and youth who constitute almost half of Nepal’s population.
The image shows wide spread flooding not only along the river corridor but also other low lying areas. The flood has receded since the peak event, leaving scar from erosion and deposition prominently visible. There are some water logged areas still visible and some are close to settlement area (indicated by blue polygon). The flood had inundated road infrastructure in many stretches and highly likely that it was damaged at 3 place.
While the flood water has receded since the peak flow, there are many pockets where trapped flood remains (within whilte polygons).

Kuala Lumpur/Geneva, 18 August 2017 — A humanitarian crisis is unfolding across large areas in South Asia, with more than 16 million people affected by monsoon floods in Nepal, Bangladesh and India.
“This is fast becoming one of the most serious humanitarian crises this region has seen in many years and urgent action is needed to meet the growing needs of millions of people affected by these devastating floods,” said Martin Faller, Deputy Regional Director for Asia Pacific, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).
• Heavy monsoon rains have caused landslides and floods across northern India, southern Nepal and Bangladesh.
• A third of Bangladesh is under water. The situation is expected to worsen, as swollen rivers carry the flood water from upstream India into the low-lying and densely populated Brahmaputra delta.
• More heavy rain for the region in the coming days is forecasted.
• With many areas still not accessible, the number of people affected is likely to rise further.
North-eastern India, southern Nepal and Bangladesh received heavy rainfall during the last few Legend days, which caused widespread flood claiming 160 human lives and displacing millions of people from their homes.
Beginning on 11 August 2017, the worst rains in 15 years struck Nepal, triggering widespread large-scale flooding and landslides in 26 of the country's 75 districts, spanning from the eastern, central to the western regions.
Eastern districts of Jhapa, Sunsari, Morang, Saptari and central districts of Sarlahi, Bara, Makawanpur, Sindhuli, Chitwan, Rautahat, Dhanusha were the most affected. In the mid-western region, Dang, Banke, Bardiya and Surkhet are highly affected.
The European Union (EU) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) have signed an agreement for an additional Euro 1.6 million grant as part of the electoral assistance to Nepal to reinforce their cooperation with the Election Commission of Nepal (ECN).
The grant will be used to provide needful electoral assistance to the ECN through the UNDP-managed Electoral Support Project (ESP).
