This study uses the sustainable livelihood approach to examine the extent to which the access to various capital influence a household's livelihood transition from farming to non-farm activities also called farm exit in a poor rural agricultural setting of Nepal. In actuality, they each have their own unique health problems and risks. Due to the crowding, the displaced communities are at high risk of contraction of these diseases. Changes in land use patterns have led to people encroaching into forest areas bringing individuals into close proximity to wild animals and new pathogens. Access and availability of irrigation facility: technology such as irrigation and availability of irrigation facilities to farmers can help boost the income of farmers and their households . A great example of micro credit and human development is the Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee (BRAC). This movement exposes populations to new pathogens that exist in their new found home, at the same time these migrants bring new pathogens to this new environment. Those who are not able to repay loans have lost their property to the credit organizations to which they owed money. Gender ; where a livelihood is determined by the gender of an individual.

Zoonotic diseases that can be passed on through water contaminated by rodent and livestock urine such as Leptospirosis can also be a major threat to the communities that have survived a natural disaster such as flooding. Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease that affects humans and is passed on from animals to humans through contact with urine from infected livestock and rodents. The SL framework is applicable to both rural and urban survival strategies. The Koshi River basin, a trans-boundary river (originates from the Tibetan Plateau of China passes through Nepal Himalaya, Terai and flood plain areas of Bihar, India), is one of the hotspots of climate change (Nepal, 2016). 06. Due to the growing global population, people are moving into areas that were uninhabited in search for land for agriculture and for construction of homes, and for pasture lands to sustain their livestock. Yet livelihoods are always dynamic, involving transitions between different strategies (Ellis, 2000). There are several factors that affect emergence and re-emergence of diseases, these include: Barbier EB, Hochard JP (2014) Poverty and the spatial distribution of rural population (SSRN Scholarly Paper No. Quirós R, Gonzalez-Vega C (2007) LATIN AMERICA COSTA RICA FINCA.

In the past decades, there has been a reduction in farming as a source of livelihood in rural areas and an increase in participation in non-farm activities or a combination of both to sustain a household (Ellis 1996, 2000 ) . Microfinance is therefore not only a source of income, but one way to develop a community to attain sustainable livelihoods. Natural disasters contribute to emergence and re-emergence of infectious diseases. Land is a source of food and income for the rural poor, lack of land therefore leads to lack of food and income hence hunger and malnutrition . Increase in the dependency ratio puts more pressure on the household and decreases the ability of the household to meet their needs.

Copher Rural residents living in river basins are highly vulnerable and particularly sensitive to climate change. A household or community that is further from town has poor access to these facilities and has less chance of diversifying. In India and many parts of sub-Saharan Africa and most developing countries, farmers are opting for diversification rather than farming only as the small-scale farming or land -based livelihood are proving unsustainable and cannot support their families for food and fodder for their livestock. Rural Community Health versus Urban City Health Some of the natural disasters include floods, earthquakes, storms, fires, landslides and many more.
