Research members, Prof. Vimal Mishra from the IITGN, Dr. Binod Baniya from Tribhuvan University, Dr. XU Ximeng and Dr. HE Li, both from IGSNRR, introduced their research progress. Participants also had heated discussion on subsequent research of the project during the workshop. Prof. Vimal MISHRA from the IITGN and Prof. Nigel WRIGHT from the University of Birmingham suggested taking relevant flood mitigation measures to the local area through agencies (i.e., the United Nations) to serve the GBM river basin.
