Nepal Risk Reduction Consortium Flagship Programmes

In February 2011, the Government of Nepal (GoN) launched the Nepal Risk Reduction Consortium (NRRC). The NRRC is a unique body that unites the GoN, the international financial institutions of the Asian Development Bank and World Bank, development partners and donors, the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, and the United Nations as members in the Steering Committee of the NRRC. The Government of India is a standing observer member of the Steering Committee.

We work to bridge the spectrum of activity of development and humanitarian expertise, supporting the GoN to implement a long term Disaster Risk Reduction Action Plan. The work of the NRRC builds on the National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management (NSDRM) which was approved in 2009.

Following the approval of the NSDRM and discussion by multi-stakeholder groups
based on GoN priorities, five Flagship areas of immediate action for disaster risk management (DRM) in Nepal were identified:

• School and hospital safety
• Emergency preparedness and response capacity
• Flood management in the Kosi river basin
• Integrated community-based disaster risk reduction/management
• Policy/Institutional support for disaster risk management

The estimated total budget of the five-year Flagship programmes is US $195.8 million
