Avoiding a perfect storm: COVID-19 and floods in Nepal

Source(s):  Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a serious risk for flood vulnerable communities in Nepal as the monsoon season begins in earnest while coronavirus cases are increasing and the Nepalese economy is struggling with lockdown and reduction in remittances from those working abroad.

To enable action to reduce the risks facing communities Mercy Corps and Practical Action conducted an assessment of 46 Community Disaster Management Committees (CMDC) across 5 districts to understand the state of flood vulnerable populations and provide recommendations for governments, donors (p. 8) and Community Disaster Management Committees (p. 9) to better prepare for the coming monsoon season and the compound risks caused by COVID-19.
