Nepal Risk Reduction Consortium (NRRC): flagship priorities


This set of brochures introduce the Nepal Risk Reduction Consortium (NRRC), a unique arrangement that unites humanitarian, development and financial partners with the Government of Nepal in order to reduce Nepal’s vulnerability to natural disasters. It provides an overview of the 5 flagship priorities for sustainable disaster risk management that NRRC identified based on the Hyogo Framework for Action and Nepal’s National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management: (i) school and hospital safety; (ii) emergency preparedness and response; (iii) flood risk management in the Kosi river basin; (iv) community based disaster risk reduction; and (v) policy and institutional support for disaster risk management (DRM).

Each flagship priority is described in an independent document highlighting: the target of the flagship, its objectives, who's involved in the work, as well as some accomplishments. The set is intended to provide an outline of the NRRC and disaster risk reduction in Nepal.
