travel connections and the intensified contact to other parts of Nepal
including the Kathmandu valley has, on the other side, made Hewa more
and more vulnerable to negative impacts of development. The transport
of goods in the region becomes easier day by day. The access of modern
products to the village also brings growing waste to Hewa. For the
first time, there is a small shop in the village since 2015 and one
could already see discarded rubbish along the paths in the same year.
Glass bottles and beverage cans have found their way to the village,
but there is no plan how to get rid of them when they have been
emptied. This problem will definitely increase as soon as the road
connection from Chhulemu has been established.
The keep the village clean in future and to safeguard the unpollued environment, a policy has to be developed how the growing volume of waste can be managed. This is one of the most important tasks of HSCC and the village community in near future.
