Kushaha is a village located in the Koshi Tappu region of Saptari District in Nepal. In 2008, the whole village was flooded when the eastern embankments of Sapta Koshi Barrage collapsed. The locals of this small village development community continue to suffer from that devastating incident, and every year several areas in the village are being affected by flooding.
In October 2021, we visited Kushaha to undertake research on the local manifestations of peace and environmental sustainability. From the focus group discussions with the locals, we came to know that the community is still facing problems due to flooding and wildlife encounters.
