Data Set Summary:
The transboundary Pumpqu/Arun River basin spreads across Nepal and Tibet. Nearly 95% of the basin lies in Tibet through which the Pumpqu River flows. The river is named the Arun River once it enters Nepal. Five large hydropower projects (in total about 3,163 MW) are currently under construction or are planned for the Arun River valley. Rainfall and earthquake-induced landslides, landslide dammed lakes, and landslide-induced glacial lake outburst floods pose major risks to the smooth operation of these projects. This data set is a multitemporal landslide inventory covering the whole Pumpqu/Arun River basin. It was generated in support of the World Bank’s Risk Assessment of Landslides in the Upper Arun Hydropower Project.
