Comprehensive Disaster Risk Management Programme (CDRMP)
Abstract:
Nepal is one of the 20 most disaster-prone countries in the world. The entire country is located in a high-hazard earthquake zone (GAR 2009). More than 80% of Nepali people are at high risk from additional hazards including floods, landslides, windstorms, hailstorms, fires, and Glacial Lake Outburst Floods (GLOFs). Globally, Nepal ranks 4th and 11th in terms of its relative vulnerability to climate change (Maplecroft 2011) and earthquakes (BCPR 2004). Climate change and variability in weather patterns has exacerbated the vulnerability of at risk populations, especially among already poor and marginalised groups. UNDP’s Comprehensive Disaster Risk Management Programme (CDRMP), approved by the Government of Nepal in 2011, aims to support implementation of Nepal’s National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management (NSDRM) through an integrated package of technical and material support, in line with the Nepal Risk Reduction Consortium’s (NRRC) Flagship Programme targets.
