Mar 18, 2018-Gobargadha of Hanuman Nagar Kankalini Municipality-13 in Saptari district is going to be shifted to a safer area because the village is highly vulnerable to flood.
Almost every year during monsoon season, the village is flooded by the Saptakoshi river and other streams that surround it.
There are around 70 families living in Gobargadha.
Hanumannagar-Kankalini Municipality Mayor Shailesh Kumar Sah said they need around four bighas of land to relocate the families.
On the sidelines of the 62nd session of the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW62), UN Women, along with civil society partners*, convened a dialogue with activists from rural areas and other allies. The conversation brought together diverse constituencies from around the globe to discuss what it would take to leave no woman or girl in any rural area behind in the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The National Reconstruction Authority (NRA), which is responsible for post-earthquake reconstruction and recovery works, has moved ahead with the house pooling concept by including the families who were affected by the 2015 Gorkha earthquake.
The NRA will begin the work from Dabbuchowk, a settlement in Ward 18 of the Kathmandu Metropolitan City (KMC), according to by the NRA joint-secretary Raju Manandhar.
The Impact of Disasters on Agriculture and Food Security 2015 showed that a staggering 22 percent of total damage and loss from natural disasters in developing countries was absorbed by the agriculture sector alone.
(MissionNewswire) Salesian missionaries have continued to respond to long-term reconstruction and educational needs after two earthquakes in 2015 caused massive destruction in Nepal. A devastating 7.8 earthquake struck the country on April 25, 2015, followed by a second earthquake that struck on May 12. More than 8,000 people died and close to 20,000 were injured as a result of the earthquakes and their aftermath.

Survey Methodology and Demographics
To carry out the Flood Perception Survey, 30 trained enumerators are deployed throughout the ten most heavily flood affected districts to collect data over the course of 10 days from a total of 1800 respondents using a probability proportionate to size (PPS) methodology. All data collection is completed with mobile tablets using KoBo Toolbox.
Susceptibility to natural disasters, vulnerability to price fluctuations in agriculture-dependent regions, civil unrest, challenging geographic landscape and poor infrastructure have contributed to food insecurity in Nepal. According to the UN World Food Program (WFP), onequarter of the nation’s population lives on less than $0.50 per day.

But the shift following the promulgation of the constitution to historic elections is showing that society is rethinking and redefining what it means to lead

“Most of the youths have left their villages, leaving behind only elderly people,” said Tika Shrestha, a resident of Pangchet in Doramba-7.
