Published OCRI supported story draws attention of Nepali authorities
After weeks of field work following the training received in May, the first story supported by OCRI was published in September. The story which was on the Urban Flooding in Kathmandu Valley served as a warning following the devastating effect the Pakistani flood has had, with nearly a third of nearby Pakistan submerged.
We are glad to see that one of the supported stories has prompted steps to address the problems raised from the authorities responsible. The Kathmandu Valley Development Authority (KDVA) gave an ultimatum for the removal of structures constructed illegally near the river banks within the valley.
