Capacity Building of the Kharikhola inhabitants include a series of mass awareness programs in the community at the first stage.

Total 24 residents of Ward No 1 of Khumbu Pasanglhamu Rural Municipality participated in the first event of the series. Other orientation programs along with the Hazard Mapping workshops is being continued.

Communities of Kharikhola had identified awareness raising, education and training on Disaster as the priority action to be implemented in their community in the VFL survey conducted.

A structured VFL survey was conducted to get the local actor’s perspectives on risk assessment of the community in 15 different communities of Nepal. The results obtained from the survey was then shared with the communities so that the communities themselves identify and prioritize the local level actions to be taken further.  The survey not only captured local perspectives on risk and resilience, but also monitored the extent to which local actors are included in resilience-planning processes. It helped establish a local baseline and local monitoring process to measure progress towards achieving an inclusive, people-centred approach to resilience-building, as promoted within the Sendai Framework for DRR and associated frameworks.

NSET is serving as the National Coordinating Organization for implementing the Views from the Frontline Program (VFL 2019) in Nepal. Forum for Awareness and Youth Activity (FAYA), Fulvari Integrated Rural Development Organization (FIRDO), Friends Service Council Nepal (FSCN) and Nava Prabhat Nepal are the four POs supporting the implementation of the program.
