Launching of New Local Water Parliaments (LWP)

Activities Year: 

GWP Nepal/JVS launched new LWP Jog Mai and Gorkhe in VDC of Ilam district of Eastern Nepal. This approach of LWP initiated by GWP Nepal/JVS has encouraged and strengthened people’s interest in better management of the resources at the local level. With this, each VDC developed a detail inventory of water resources and maintained record of these resources in use - by whom, when and for what purposes, including volume of water use. The initiation of LWP has created an atmosphere of co-operation and understanding among the people in the development of comprehensive water use master plan for optimum utilization of water resources for the benefit of all.
