Foi desenvolvido um modelo numérico tridimensional de fluxo subterrâneo do vale de Katmandu (capital do Nepal) para avaliar o impacto da bombagem de água subterrânea sobre o padrão do fluxo de água subterrânea. Devido à escassez e contaminação da água de superfície, as águas subterrâneas constituem na região a principal fonte de água para abastecimento doméstico, agrícola e mesmo industrial. No entanto, apesar da importância local das águas subterrâneas, a hidrogeologia do vale de Katmandu ainda não se encontra bem estudada. Sabe-se que devido à recarga limitada e à captação não regulamentada de águas subterrâneas, o nível piezométrico da região tem decaído rapidamente, para valores que revelam a não sustentabilidade da captação deste recurso de água. Dados geológicos e hidrogeológicos foram integrados para desenvolver um modelo hidrogeológico conceptual do sistema aquífero do vale de Katmandu, que foi a base para o desenvolvimento do modelo numérico. O sistema aquífero foi modelado numericamente utilizando o programa MODFLOW 4.2, em estado estacionário e definindo três camadas, duas correspondentes ao aquífero da base e ao aquífero mais superficial, e a terceira a um nível de baixa condutividade hidráulica e com um comportamento de aquitardo. Foi utilizado o programa MODPATH para simular os sentidos e direcção preferenciais de fluxo subterrâneo. A área total do modelo é de cerca de 327 km2 e foi dividida em células de aproximadamente 18...

Chronic suppurative otitis media is one of the common ear diseases of the ear, particularly in childhood. It is the commonest cause of persistent mild to moderate hearing impairment in children and young adults. AIM: To find out the prevalence of chronic suppurative otitis media among school children studying in urban private schools of Nepal. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This study was carried out among 500 school children aged between 5 -15 years. Students were selected from urban private schools of four districts of Nepal. In all students, history was taken and otoscopic examination done from May 2006 to October 2006. Data were described using frequency and percentage. Study design: Prospective cross sectional study. RESULTS: Results showed that the prevalence of chronic suppurative otitis media in children studying in urban private schools of Nepal is 5.0%. Unilateral disease was seen in 72.0%, 76.0% had a tubotympanic disease and 24.0% had atticoantral disease. CONCLUSION: The prevalence of chronic suppurative otitis media in urban private school children in Nepal is higher than other studies done in private school children. Health education, improvement of socioeconomic status and health facilities will be helpful in reducing the prevalence of chronic suppurative otitis media.

The article reviews information on the epidemiology of HIV/AIDS and behavioural networking to examine the role of population mobility in spreading HIV across the Indo-Nepal border. Documents were collected through a systematic search of electronic databases and web-based information resources, and the review focuses on studies about types of the virus, prevalence of HIV, and sexual and injecting networking. HIV-1 (subtype C) and HIV-2 were identified in Nepal. The prevalence of HIV was higher among male labour migrants and female sex workers (FSWs) who returned from India, especially from Mumbai, than in similar non-migrant groups. In the early 2000s, about 6–10% of Mumbai returnee men, compared to up to 4% of India returnee men and up to 3% of non-migrant men in the far-west Nepal, were identified with HIV. Likewise, when the prevalence of HIV among sex workers in Kathmandu was found to be 17% in 1999–2000, up to 44% of India returnee and 73% of Mumbai returnee FSWs were identified with the virus. These data are, however, based on small samples with questionable representativeness of the target populations and need to be interpreted cautiously. They also generate a biased impression that HIV was coming into Nepal from India. Recently...

peer-reviewed; Implementation of current international consensus guidelines regarding mental health and psychosocial support in emergencies requires the consideration of findings from both the medical and social sciences. This paper presents a multi-disciplinary review of reported findings regarding the relations between political violence, mental health and psychosocial wellbeing in Nepal. A systematic search of six data- bases resulted in the identification of 572 studies, of which 44 were included in the review. These studies investigated the influence of political violence on contextual variables that shape mental health and psychosocial wellbeing, and examined psychological distress and mental disorders in the context of political violence. The majority of studies addressed the mental health of Bhutanese refugees in Nepal and the impact of the Maoist People’s War. Based upon these results from Nepal, we discuss a number of issues of concern to international researchers and practitioners and present policy and research recommendations. Specifically, we consider (a) the need for longitudinal multi-disciplinary research into protective and risk factors, including agency, of psychological distress and mental disorders in situations of political violence...

The majority of rural communities have limited agricultural development opportunities within the hills and mountains of Nepal. While the dominant development model, which focuses on technology transfer and the evolution of commercial production systems, is effective when access to inputs and markets enables farmers to produce and trade successfully, many communities are marginalised from development opportunities by poverty and poor infrastructure. Complementary development approaches that value, conserve, develop and market agrobiodiversity could alleviate the extreme poverty where these conditions prevail as in the hills and mountains, the rural margins of Nepal. Formalised in situ approaches to agrobiodiversity conservation are in their infancy in Nepal, yet suggest that opportunities exist for a complementary agricultural development approach in the rural margins based on working with the local diversity, rather than its elimination. The obstacles of widespread poverty and inadequate infrastructure ensure that effective in situ agrobiodiversity conservation programs must provide for the needs of local people for sustainable development.; Douglas Bardsley and Ian Thomas; © Springer 2005

In this thesis I ask what constitutes a Nepali youth, and question what role they play in contemporary Nepal. Based on fieldwork conducted in Nepal from March 2008 to March 2009 and July to September 2010, my research contributes to an emerging body of work that problematises the youth construct in Nepal. Bucholtz (2002) has highlighted the increasingly salient roles that young people are playing in their societies and has called for an anthropology of youth as a pressing task. Faced with social, cultural, political and economic change, young Nepalis are playing more important social roles than ever before. I argue that one of these fundamental roles is nation building, the ideal product of which is popularly termed ‘new Nepal’. I look at youth and their role as nation builders through a communication for development initiative that centres on two radio programs produced in Kathmandu. The content of these radio programs is re-packaged into local radio programs that are produced in regional radio stations, and community-level activities that are conducted by radio listeners clubs. I use Bolter and Grusin’s (1999) concept of remediation to conceptualise this process and the changes to the youth archetype represented in the original radio programs. Following Novak’s (2010) application of this concept...

Suicide is a crisis of unknown proportions in much of the developing world. The majority of research into suicide has been done in high-resource countries such as Australia, and most intervention protocols have been drawn up using Western models. There appear to be a number of differences in the aetiology, presentation and treatment options for mental health problems between high-resource and low-resource countries. This review compares suicide in a high-resource country, Australia, and low-resource country, Nepal.Many low-resource countries such as Nepal struggle to address barriers to mental health care due to limited mental health resources and issues such as stigma, workforce and mental health literacy. Issues relating to suicide prevention are raised, contrasting a low-resource country, Nepal, with a high-resource country, Australia.; Jill Benson, Rabi Shakya

HIV/AIDS has emerged as a serious epidemic in Nepal, concentrated amongst the most-at-risk populations. Volun-tary Counseling and Testing (VCT) is a proven strategy for the prevention and management of HIV/AIDS especially in developing countries. Given that the utilization of VCT is low in Nepal, it is important to understand the barriers and challenges that Nepal is facing in the provision and utilization of these services. This study aimed to provide recommendations for policy makers to improve the utilization of VCT services in Nepal. A qualitative study of VCT health service providers and government officials was undertaken in 4 cities of Nepal. Sixteen interviews, three joint interviews and one focus group discussion were conducted, audio recorded and transcribed verbatim. Data were then analyzed using a thematic analysis framework and major themes were identified. Various barriers including socio-cultural issues, geography, the presence of stigma and discrimination faced by people with HIV/AIDS and a lack of knowledge and awareness were identified as important factors limiting the utilization of VCT services. Current gov-ernment efforts to improve VCT service provision, although promising, require ongoing development. Systemic barriers included the sustainability of the temporary NGO VCT services...

China has always been an important neighbour to Nepal which has otherwise historically been heavily influenced by India. The ‘Rise of China’ has created a more outward-looking Middle Kingdom and so its influence in Nepal has significantly increased within the last decade. As a consequence, Nepal is experiencing growing interest from China. The paper aims to give historical background to Sino-Nepali relations and to measure the most recent impact of the ‘Rise of China’ on Nepal, particularly on its economic, military, and political fronts. This is followed by a broader look at China’s policy towards Nepal, also taking into account China’s overall strategy towards South Asia. Apart from China’s relationship with India, the issues of stability in Tibet as well as Tibetan refugees within Nepal remain important factors for the Sino-Nepali relationship even to this day.

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; This study focuses on the leadership roles of Pushpa Kamal Dahal, alias "Prachanda", in the Maoist's political victory in Nepal. The Nepalese Maoist Insurgency under Prachanda's leadership, without strong evident external support and without achieving a military victory over the state, rose to power in a very short time. Prachanda chose an outdated ideology and launched armed struggle to put forward his grievances in spite of the country having restored democracy after thirty years of autocratic regime. The evidence shows that it was Prachanda's leadership qualities that facilitated the Maoists' growth in Nepal. They gained political success without military victory and eventually won an electoral victory in the Constituent Assembly. The main reasons for his success in this endeavor, which the findings show, are: 1) correct selection of the members in the party's top leadership positions; 2) thorough planning and timely implementation of a precise strategy; 3) the flexibility to switch his strategy from classic communist ideology of class struggle to identity issues, to form many ethnic fronts, to establish autonomous ethnic regions, and to raise caste and ethnic issues to mobilize the indigenous nationalities; and 4) timely switching to political settlements...

peer-reviewed; Using ethnographic data collected in a village in rural Nepal in 2002, this article explores the fear that pervades the lives of the villagers and the survival strategies and creativity that they bring to bear on the extraordinary situations they are forced to encounter. Since the escalation of the conflict at the end of 2001, a 'culture of terror' has engulfed the lives of rural Nepal is. The Maoist in surgents have coerced them into providing food and shelter , which in turn makes the villagers vulnerable to aggression by the security forces who suspect them of collaborating with the enemy. In the context of the ever-present but unpredictable threat from both s ides of killings, beatings and torture, and the tensions and insecurities caused by rumour and counter- rumour, this study examines the depth of fear experienced by the villagers and the extent to which this fear has become part of their daily existence.It confirms experiences from other parts of the world where the 'routinisation of fear' has been shown to have long-term effects on people's psychological health. In this study the effects are seen in changed sleeping patterns, chronic illnesses, altered relationships with the land , and new ways of socialising both within the family and in the wider village. But even in the violation of their most intimate spaces-their homes-the villagers have been able to maintain some degree of control and creative resistance over their unwelcome guests through their own social networks and cultural practices.

Monografia apresentada à Universidade Fernando Pessoa como parte dos requisitos para obtenção do grau de Licenciada em Medicina Dentária; Introdução: As duas doenças mais prevalentes em odontologia são a cárie e doenças periodontais, são preveníveis ou passíveis de controlo mediante procedimentos relativamente simples, como a escovagem dentária, o controle da frequência do consumo de açúcares, o uso adequado do flúor e visitas periódicas ao dentista. Uma das possíveis explicações para a alta prevalência e incidência dessas patologias é sua associação a condições sociais, económicas, políticas e educacionais e não apenas a factores determinantes biológicos que interagem na etiologia dessas doenças. Uma alimentação saudável tem um impacto na saúde em geral e na salde oral em particular. Existe uma conexão clara entre o tipo de alimentos e a frequência da sua ingestão como desenvolvimento da cárie dentária, defeitos de esmalte, e doenças periodontais, especialmente se não forem tomadas medidas preventivas adequadas. Objectivos: Neste estudo pretende-se avaliar o estado de saúde oral e diferenças alimentares, de crianças e jovens institualizadas em orfanatos da Índia e Nepal, tendo em conta o baixo nível económico existente nestes dois países e instituições. Pretende-se também fazer promoção de higiene oral como forma de promover saúde oral. Métodos: Foi seleccionado um grupo de idades compreendida entre os 6 e os 14 anos inclusivo. Para registo de dados foram usados três tipos de questionário...

Nepal es un Estado que ha sufrido un reciente proceso de transición democrática, desarrollado en el marco de un conflicto social y armado que tuvo como principal exponente al Partido Comunista de Nepal-Maoísta (PCN-M). En este contexto, el objetivo de la presente investigación es analizar la influencia del PCN-M sobre la transición del Estado nepalí. Su conflicto, su transición y su insurgencia son temas de los cuales poco se he tratado, en lo cual radica la importancia de esta investigación. Se cree que la presión social y política ejercida por el PCN-M influyo de manera directa y contundente en la consolidación del proceso democrático en el país nepalí. Por medio de la teoría de transición democrática de Guillermo o'Donnell se analizan las diferentes dinámicas de la transición, y el papel que la insurgencia en ella. Mediante una investigación de tipo correccional y explicativa se recurrirán diferentes fuentes comprueben la hipótesis del presenté proyecto.

The Britain-Nepal Academic Council was established on 23 May 2000 at a large meeting at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London of British academics and researchers interested in various aspects of Nepal.; Nepal?s political and civil society leaders are rightly credited with a remarkable nationally-owned peace process. From 2003 onwards, the United Nations began its support through a low-key good offices role to encourage an end to the armed conflict. In 2005, the UN role expanded with the establishment of a large human rights monitoring operation (OHCHR-Nepal), which sought to mitigate abuses on both sides of the war and to defend democratic rights as the people?s movement intensified. After the ceasefire, the first interim government and the Maoists asked the UN to monitor commitments regarding arms and armed personnel under the Comprehensive Peace Agreement, and to assist in holding the election of a Constituent Assembly. To this end, the United Nations Mission in Nepal (UNMIN) was established in January 2007 by the UN Security Council. As consensus among the parties broke down after the Maoists? electoral success, the UN role was drawn into increasing controversy, and today Nepal and the UN face a possible crisis around the imminent deadline for the new constitution. In his talk...

This paper assesses the electricity sector reforms across small power systems while citing Nepal as an example. The on-going political instability and increasing electricity demand make power sector reform in Nepal and similar small systems a more complex process. As international reform experiences provide plenty of lessons to learn; raising electricity tariffs and adjusting subsidies in the presence of an effective regulation body are important in the short and medium term. The creation of an effective regulatory commission is also more urgent than unbundling the sector in smaller systems though accounting separation may sometimes be desirable as in the present context in Nepal. In the long run as the system grows, vertical separation and competitive privatisation may be pursued together with the creation of a functioning wholesale market by horizontally splitting the generation segments.

This dissertation presents the first findings of aerosol indirect effect in the foothills of the Himalayas (Central Nepal), through a systematic research approach involving satellite data analysis, field campaign, growth factor estimation and numerical modeling studies. Satellite retrieved aerosol optical depth data over the region were first used to identify the dominant modes of spatial/temporal variability of aerosols in the region. Based on the observed dominant spatial mode of aerosol in the pre-monsoon season (Shrestha and Barros 2010, ACP), a field campaign was organized under the Joint Aerosol Monsoon Experiment (JAMEX09) at Dhulikhel and Besisahar to simultaneously measure dry and ambient aerosols size spectra using SMPS and chemical composition using filters (Shrestha et al. 2010, ACP). The diurnal cycle of aerosol number concentration exhibited a consistent peak in the morning and evening period, which was found to be associated with increase in local emission and the delay in ventilation of aerosol through upslope flows and mixing (inferred from an idealized numerical study over Besisahar). The aerosol size distribution was mostly unimodal at night and bimodal during the day, with a consistent larger mode around 100nm and a smaller mode located around 20nm. The chemical composition of PM2.5 was dominated by organic matter at both sites. Organic carbon (OC) comprised the major fraction (64~68%) of the aerosol concentration followed by ionic species (24~26%...

Since the opening of its doors to the outside world, Nepal has seen a large growth in tourist arrivals. One of the fast growing tourist markets attracted to Nepal is the trekking vacationers. In order for the suppliers and decision makers of the trekking product to be able to meet the demand of users it is important that they are able to target the development in the appropriate direction. A lack of communication among the components of the tourism industry has resulted in a lack of cooperation. The purpose of this study is to develop an instrument that enhances communication allowing for better cooperation between the users, suppliers, and decision makers of the trekking industry. Unlike other studies using the same technique, this study is a model for the comparison of the perceptions of the different components. An evaluation tool known as Importance-Performance Analysis was adapted for the purpose of this study. This tool determines the perceptions of the different components of the industry in six phases. First, the attributes of the trekking industry in Nepal were identified. Second, a survey was developed and conducted on the trekking agencies in Nepal. Third, the data was gathered and compiled into a manageable size for interpretation. Then...
