      Abstract, Soil Systems, Land degradation, particularly soil erosion, is currently a major challenge for Nepal. With a high rate of population growth, subsistence-based rural economy, and increasingly intense rainfall events in the monsoon season, Nepal is prone to several forms of land degradation, such as floods, landslides, and soil erosion.   Soil Syst, 3(1), 12; Devraj Chalise 1,2,*,Lalit Kumar 1 and Paul Kristiansen 11School of Environmental and Rural Science, University of New England, Armidale, NSW , Australia 2National M.

Bio-engineering erosion control in Nepal. K.M. Sthapit and L.C. Tennyson. In 16 years of activity, the Nepalese Department of Soil Conservation and Watershed Management has developed and implemented erosion control techniques suitable to mountainous topography characterized by intensive monsoon rains.

      Landslides are downslope movements of masses of soil and/or rock. They can cause some of the most spectacular damage attributable to earth movement or ground movement. Landslides include mudflows ("mudslides"), earth slumps, rockfalls, and other types of slope failures. trigger the susceptibility of landslide (Rajbhandari et. al. ; ICIMOD, ) of the Hill slope of Nepal. In addition, Terai flat land and Churia range of Nepal also experiences the land degradation (Singh et. al. ). Surface soil erosion mainly in agricultural land is quite significant varies form 2.

Adding to the problem, Mr. Pokhrel said, is that people in hilly regions like Sindhupalchok tend to grow rice, which requires more water than crops like maize or barley, leading to soil erosion. soil erosion, and landslides has not decreased as expected. Nepal consequently needs to prepare periodic plans which are more realistic, emphasising capacity enhancement, local participation, and.

Nepal is very prone to soil erosion and is susceptible to 'sediment disasters mainly caused by slope failure, landslides, debris flows and bank erosion. Land degradation, particularly soil erosion, is currently a major challenge for Nepal. With a high rate of population growth, subsistence-based rural economy, and increasingly intense rainfall events in the monsoon season, Nepal is prone to several forms of land degradation, such as floods, landslides, and soil erosion.

To understand the causes, impacts, and possible Cited by: Landslides and floods threaten many settlements in mid-hill region Haphazard construction of rural roads have raised the risk of landslides and erosions, road engineers say. Haphazard construction of rural roads raises the risk of landslides and soil erosion.

KATHMANDU, Nepal — A landslide precipitated partially by unusually heavy rain in a district of Nepal bordering China buried dozens of properties early Friday, killing not less than 11 individuals and leaving 27 others lacking, officers mentioned.

Shreedhar Neupane, a press adviser to the speaker of Nepal’s Home of Representatives, mentioned on Friday that 38 [ ].

Environmental pollution in Nepal include overpopulation, deforestation, energy and species conservation. Non-timber forests are threatened by deforestation, habitat degradation and unsustainable harvesting. Major threats to some protected areas are grazing all year around, poaching for high value products, illegal timber harvesting and unsustainable tourism.

Erosion is usually thought of as the gradual wearing away of the top layer of soils, either by water flow or wind, often taking away a few tens of an inch or less over a period of days or even weeks.

Flooding, of course, can create a large gully i. Therefore, landslide treatment is done every year to protect property and lives in Nepal.

Landslide treatment refers to the vegetative and structural measures applied in the landslide area and its influential catchment that aim to reduce soil erosion and mass movement from landslide and reduce the devastating effects on the areas.

This success stories book is dedicated to the local communities of the six districts of Nepal (Chitwan, that 40 percent of landslides occurring in Nepal are due to human activities. In last few years, climate change has problem of soil erosion, flood and landslide.

LAMJUNG: At least 10 houses have been buried under landslide when the incessant rainfall induced soil erosion and landslide claimed a part of Marsyangdi-1, Lamjung on Wednesday.

They create blockades in the road network and river system, which in turn, cause floods. Eleven bodies were recovered and 27 people were still missing. Some of the homes lost had been rebuilt after Nepal’s devastating quake. According to the landslide zonation map of Kerala State Disaster Management Authority, Thiruvananthapuram has around square kilometres of high hazard landslide-prone area and approximately.

determining the rates of soil erosion. Apart from these, particle size distribution, effect of slope exposition and terrace farming seem to have substantial influence on soil erodibility and development of erosion features in the study area.

The study aims to evaluate the magnitude of soil erosion in the Middle Mountain region of Nepal. KATHMANDU, Nepal — A landslide caused in part by unusually heavy rain in a district of Nepal bordering China buried dozens of homes early Friday, killing at least 11 people and leaving 27 others missi.

The term landslide or less frequently, landslip, refers to several forms of mass wasting that include a wide range of ground movements, such as rockfalls, deep-seated slope failures, mudflows, and debris ides occur in a variety of environments, characterized by either steep or gentle slope gradients, from mountain ranges to coastal cliffs or even underwater, in.

Nepal. Prudently laid out, these ponds have prov ed effective in saving land from erosion, in stabilising landslides and gullies, and in improvin g farm productivity.

They were also found to be effective in promoting vegetative cover and maintaining soil moisture in the drier hill slopes.In July an intense rain band associated with the annual Asian monsoon tracked across central Nepal, triggering 14 fatal landslides that killed 85 people.

The reinsurance company Swiss Re estimated that rainfall induced landslides associated with the El Nino event triggered landslides along the west coast of North, Central and.

The mid hill region in Nepal is characterized by natural slopes and ridges, prone to landslides and slope instability due to intensive cultivation and cropping without any terrace and bunds. This situation adds to increasingly erratic rainfall patterns, causing landslides and severe soil erosion among others.
