Building resilience of the most at-risk households and communities through transformative, innovative, inclusion of diversity and process of equity across the earthquake-affected areas in Nepal.
The restructuring process of Nepal has set different layers of local and federal administrative systems. The overall vulnerability of assessed areas is high. These assessments clearly portray that DRR and BBB are going parallel without risk-integrated actions at the field. This will put strain on humanitarian assistance, should there be any future disaster, the probability of which are very high given the multi-hazard nature of the country. The proposed CARE-ICCO consortium project will work in three rural municipalities across three selected districts. Using a multi-pronged strategy and with a synergistic actions with UNDP, the project’s central theme is to contribute to BBB, reconstruction, restoring livelihoods and building resilience of the most at-risk HHs and communities to deal with stress and shocks. The project is focused on (a) addressing the humanitarian risks of most at-risk HHs through access to financial resources, innovative quick impact livelihood actions and joint advocacy, (b) collective vulnerabilities reduction of at-risk communities through strengthening community structure, risk informed programming, actions and (c) strengthening inclusive risk governance to address the reconstruction, DRR, effective preparedness to response and to ‚Build Back Better‘. The at-risk households‘ risk transformation will be addressed through access to livelihood opportunity, support in safe construction, access to service providers, safety nets and addressing social inequalities of vulnerable HH. The vulnerability reduction will be addressed through improving risk-sensitive planning, integrated CBDRR- BBB techniques that translates into community led DRM plans and its mainstreaming, local human resource development for disaster preparedness and response and risk governance that will be setting accountability mechanisms among the decision makers with resource allocations for risk reduction and scale up the interventions.
ER1: Humanitarian risks of most at-risk HHs reduced through access to information, financial resources (Govt and MFI), innovative quick impact livelihood actions, risk transfers and joint advocacy actions.
ER2: At-risk communities vulnerabilities reduced through community structure strengthening, risk informed programming and collaborative actions.
ER3: Local institutions‘ resilience enhanced by strengthening inclusive risk governance for reconstruction, DRR, effective preparedness to response and to ‚Build Back Better‘.
