Disaster Resilient Communities in Nepal by 2050

Risk Informed Landside Management in Nepal's Hill Area

Risk Informed Landslide Management in Nepal's Hill Area is a program supported by People in Need (PIN) and implemented by NSET during Jun 2020 to Feb 2022.

The project aims to improve resilience of hill communities in four rural municipalities (Bhotekoshi, Barabise, Tamakoshi and Big) in Sindhupalchowk and Dolakha districts through strengthening risk-informed landslide management at the local level.

The project is conducting followings activities:

- Curriculum development for community-level participatory workshops to increase the knowledge of landslide hazards and associated risks

- Coordination meetings with community, elected ward-level representatives and LDMC to strengthen risk-informed planning at the ward and community levels.

- Identification of strategic locations and set up field offices on all 4

- Municipal Level two-day Workshops on Landslide Risk Reduction planning at each municipality

- One-day workshop on Landslide Risk Reduction at all wards of the municipalities

- Orientation programs on Community Level Landslide Risk Reduction at 80% of the existing wards of formal vdc and municipality

- Distribution of calendars with relevant messages and figures on landslide risk reduction and preparedness to at least 50 % of the households in the municipalities.

- Publish and circulate advocacy and awareness booklet to at least 10 % of the household families, all key stakeholders such as NGOs working in the project area and to relevant divisions/departments of the local, provincial and national government

- Distribution of DRR Mainstreaming Guideline for local governments containing instructions, advisory checklists, guidelines, and points to consider for disaster resilience while planning for physical development like public infrastructure, buildings etc. This guideline will also be used as an advocacy material for provincial and federal governments too.
