Every year during the monsoon season, communities in the Koshi/ Gandak river basin are subjected to severe floods, which kill people, livestock, and crops as well as impede further development in the region.

Lutheran World Relief (LWR), in collaboration with Grameen Development Services, BIKALPA, Dan Church Aid, Lutheran World Federation and Integrated Development Foundation, is assisting these flood-prone communities located along the India- Nepal border in strengthening their resilience to natural hazards.

This project builds on previous work completed during a pilot project from 2013-2014.
