Conundrum on the Karnali: Hydropower in Nepal (March 2019)

The Karnali River has flowed from the Himalayas of Tibet to the Ganges in India since time immemorial. Yet, this river—and the lives of those who rely on it—will soon be irrevocably changed by the Upper Karnali Hydropower Project.

Six residents of Ramaghat, Daba and Asaraghat — the three villages closest to the dam site — documented the parts of their lives and communities that they would want an outsider to understand. Through images and stories, they shed light on the experiences of those who will be most affected by the project.

The Jackson Laboratory and Microsoft are working together to create technologies that support doctors and researchers, with immense potential benefits for patients.
