Koshi River basin, Nepal

2011

A hydrological model has been developed for the Nepalese part of the Koshi River basin (29’600 km2), based on daily rainfall measures. A concept for an early warning system has been proposed and an assessment of the flood reduction potential of the projected hydropower reservoirs in the basin has been carried out. The study has shown that these reservoirs might reduce the impact of floods during the Monsoon.
