Kathmandu valley in central Nepal is found to be exposed to the hazardous lead far beyond the permissible levels putting at risk the health of local people. Three consecutive studies of lead in paint carried out by a non-governmental research organization, from 2010 to 2013 found that over 70 per cent of paints contain high levels of lead. Similarly, as per the study conducted by Center for Public Health and Environmental Development (CePHED), the maximum level of lead exposure in schools of the area was 108 µg /ft2 in 2014.
