Supporting Agency: UN-HABITAT Headquarters, UNDP/BCPR, Geneva

Country:Nepal, Mozambique
Location within Country:Kathmandu - Nepal and Maputo – Mozambique
Project Period:February 2008 – June 2008

The Program
The project aims at application of simplified RADIUS methodology to the cities of Kathmandu (Nepal) and Maputo (Mozambique) for effective pre-disaster and post-disaster shelter planning. This application would include the testing and calibration of this methodology in these two locations; development of a guide, strategy for addressing shelter needs in risk analysis and contingency planning by ESC members and other shelter stakeholders. This guide will introduce general issues in shelter planning, in relation to risk mapping and contingency planning, as well as use of the RADIUS tool to facilitate this planning; The lessons learned from the pilot applications will be utilized to design guidance for using this methodology in high risk countries around the world. A guide and training modules will be developed to facilitate the quick and effective large-scale implementation of this methodology.
