AMID WATER CRISIS AND FOREST ENCROACHERS
Dang, a district in west Nepal, is reeling under acute water shortage due to prolong drought and drying up of river and water sources. Drinking Water Division in the district is supplying only 1.6 million liters against the demand of 24.3 million liters. Meanwhile, the District forest office in Dang is in the process of evicting forest encroachers. It is estimated that around 3500 hectares of forest land has been encroached where more than 7000 houses has been built.
