Disaster Risk Management Plan: Udaypur District (April 2011)
PDF File Size: 2.9 MB | Download   
Floods, landslides, droughts and other weather and climate-induced hazards are almost regular phenomena in Nepal. High socio-economic vulnerability of local communities and sectors – remote, rural, rugged and fragile geophysical environment mixed with unplanned settlement, population pressure, low social capacity to mitigate risk and prepare for difficulty – create scenarios of high risk, inviting disaster. Those likely to suffer the most are the poor, marginalised and disadvantaged social groups, whose limited access to resources make them least able to adapt to, prepare against and cope with their precarious environment.The National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management (2009) in Nepal links the International Hyogo Framework of Action (HFA) to Nepal’s specific context, and sets an agenda for priority action to mainstream disaster risk management into Nepal’s development. The aim of DRM Plan is to support and extend downward the needs assessment started at the national level with the National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management (NSDRM) by assessing the district level hazard risk context in Udaypur, analysing the impacts of the hazards and the fundamental vulnerabilities faced within the district, and by identifying key institutions at the district and local level and the critical capacity gaps, to plan a set of strategic priority activities across the district.The results of the district level hazard analysis identifies the top five most problematic hazards in the district as floods, landslides, pest and crop disease, drought and snake bites. This is based on a participatory assessment taking into account levels of loss, recurrence of events and prevalence of risk all VDCs in the district, the vulnerability to the hazards of the local population and the resources on which the latter depend upon.
