ABOUT PROJECT

The Bagmati River Basin (BRB) has a cultural and economic significance to the people of Nepal. The water flowing in the Bagmati River is considered holy and is used for cultural and ritual ceremonies practiced at the many significant temples located along its banks. The river flows through Kathmandu which is the administrative and economic center of the country as well as Nepal’s gateway for tourism. It provides most of the city’s drinking water in its upper basin, hydropower generation in the middle basin, and large-scale irrigation in the lower basin.
