The Nepal Risk Reduction Consortium(NRRC)is an innovative structure that brings together a wide range of Governmental, development and humanitarian partners, including Ministries, UN agencies, NGOs, donors and international financial institutions. In the absence of approved structures and policy for disaster risk management (DRM), the NRRC aims to support the Government of Nepal in developing a long-term Disaster Risk Reduction Action Plan to address the high risk of natural disasters, both large and small in scale, which Nepal faces.
Programmatically, the NRRC comprises five priority areas, or Flagships, each of which is led by a Government Ministry and coordinated by an international organisation. Above the flagship programmes sits a Steering Committee made up of senior officials from Government, donors, UN agencies and key flagship partners, designed to oversee the Flagships by providing strategic guidance, fundraising support, monitoring and evaluation. A Secretariat supports the Steering Committee, providing technical and advisory support within and across flagships. The NRRC has generated considerable national and international interest. The Flagship programmes incorporate ongoing activities in the majority of Nepal’s 75 districts. The NRRC has also supported the mobilization of significant donor resources, both technical and financial. While the establishment of the NRRC is rooted in the absence of formal national policy and structures to address these issues, it embodies the commitment of the Government of Nepal and international community to mitigate the high disaster risks facing the country. The Government of Nepal is now beginning to address gaps in structures and capacity. A disaster directorate has been established in the Ministry of Defence, and a new DRM division is being proposed within the Ministry of Home Affairs. In May 2013, the Government commissioned this Review to take stock of NRRC’s progress and achievements, as well as assess whether its strategies, architecture and investments were appropriately aligned with
Government priorities and the planned new DRM structures. The Review will also inform current and future DRM work plans and advance planning for the post-2015 context, when the current phase of the NRRC is due to end. The NRRC has helped create and retain a focus on disaster risk reduction and preparedness
nationwide. It has enabled collaboration with the Government of Nepal’s largest and most influential development partners and donors. It represents a genuinely innovative case study for coordinated systems among humanitarian, development, national and government approaches.
