The Chisapani location in the Terai of Western Nepal is a key spot as the Karnali river exits from the higher mountains to the lowlands, creating significant flood hazards that kill people almost every Monsoon. As part of an enhanced end-to-end early warning sytem, the Chisapani flood gauge reader monitors the river for alert levels and dispatches warnings to downstream vulnerable communities as part of Practical Action's efforts to build community flood resilience in Nepal.
