The Program
NSET provided technical assistance to UNDP in assisting the Government of Nepal in preparing the National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management (NSDRM) in Nepal based on Hyogo Framework of Action (HFA) with financial support form European Commission through its Humanitarian Aid department. The project prepared draft strategy documents for eight specified sectors: Agriculture and Food Security, Health, Education, Shelter, Infrastructure and Physical Planning, Livelihood, Water and Sanitation, Information, Coordination and Logistics, and Search and Rescue, Damage/Need Assessment and also addressed cross cutting issues such as Human Rights and Protection, Gender and Social Inclusion, Staff Safety and Security and Decentralization and Local Self Governance. All these collectively constituted the consolidated National Disaster Strategy on DRM. The strategy is expected to provide the road map for all sectors to prepare sector specific programs for DRM and formulate the necessary policy decisions for facilitating mainstreaming DRM into the development process.
