District Disaster Risk Management Plan (DDRMP)- Arghakhanchi District
PDF File Size: 1.1 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 mixing 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, marginalized and disadvantaged social groups, whose limited access to resources make them least able to adapt, prepare and cope to their precarious environment.
In order to address the root causes of vulnerability to natural disaster, Nepal is in the process of shifting its government policies towards proactive preparedness, mitigation and prevention. This highlights the links between disaster management and development, calling for a cross-sectoral approach to identify the bottlenecks to risk reduction. Disaster Risk Management Plans must be developed with a dual top-down and bottom-up approach, tapping the existing institutional capacity required for coordinated action, in response to community-based voicing of the most pressing needs. Efforts must mobilise a variety of actors – government, private sector and civil society – to complement each other with their respective expertise, while allocating specific and binding responsibilities to overcome difficulties of collective action.
The National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management (2009) in Nepal links the International Hyogo Framework of Action to Nepal’s specific context, and sets an agenda for priority action to mainstream disaster risk management into Nepal’s development. The aim of the District Disaster Risk Management Plan is to support and extend downward the needs assessment started at the national level with the National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management by assessing the district level hazard risk context in Arghakhanchi, 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.
