Laxmanpur Dam in Nepal - Video

Every year, the livelihoods of thousands of people living in six Village Development Committees (VDCs) of Holiya, Betahani, Mattaiya, Fattepur, Bankatti and Gangapur of Banke District in Nepal are destroyed or challenged and the villagers are forced to be displaced from their lands and homesteads due to recurring floods, inundation and erosion by the River Rapti.

This video on the Laxmanpur Dam built along the India and Nepal borders shows how despite flood and erosion being natural phenomena, peoples' livelihoods have been severely aggravated by human-made infrastructures in and across the River Rapti.
