Early Warning in Action
PDF File Size: 145 KB | Download   
Every year, floods and landslides cause 300 deaths in Nepal and economic damages exceeding US $10 million. A lack of focus on investing in disaster risk reduction has put development efforts at risk. Recognising this gap, the Government of Nepal launched the Nepal Reduction Consortium (NRRC), which identified 5 flagship priorities for disaster risk reduction. Under the NRRC, Community Based Disaster Risk Reduction (CBDRR) is a priority. Flagship 4 of the NRRC, which focuses on CBDRR in Nepal, has created in consensus with CBDRR stakeholders minimum characteristics of a disaster resilient community. Among these characteristics is an inclusive community based early warning system at VDC/ward, district, regional & national level.
