Alleged blockage at the Nepal-India border of vessels carrying essential goods resulting in a lack of basic supplies and services, including food, fuel, water and sanitation, and medical supplies and services available to the people of Nepal. According to the information received, on 20 September 2015, Nepal promulgated a new constitution, the adoption of which eventually resulted in a blockage at the border with India. On 24 September 2015, vehicles carrying essential supplies were prevented from entering Nepal. A lack of medical supplies combined with water shortages have reportedly reduced the availability of certain medical procedures, while the shortage of other vital supplies such as food and fuel had a detrimental impact on the health of persons in situation of vulnerability, school closures, and deforestation for use as fuel. As a consequence of this blockage and due to Nepal’s heavy reliance on the border trade and transactions the country risks facing a humanitarian crisis.
