Project Background

 
While monsoon in South East Asia came one month earlier this year, torrential rain for 4 days (16-19th June) on the Himalaya range triggered flash floods and landslides in mountains. It has resulted in massive flooding along rivers causing widespread casualties and damages in northern India (more than 800 dead and 1800 missing people) and in Western Nepal with more than 50 deaths and 19 missing, 1750 people displaced in Far and Mid- western region of Nepal.
 
In Humla and Kalikot districts, 2 locations where Mission East anD its local partner KIRDARC are implementing livelihood projects since 2007, rainfall caused landslides that blocked river stream which lately burst downstream, destructing dwellings, water systems and killing people in massive debris flows. In the sole district of Kalikot, 11 people died and 4 people are still missing. In Humla, 5 people of a same family died in a massive landslide.

Project Aims

Support to repair water facilities for 5 communities of Karnali region, with structural mitigation against flood and landslide and community training on emergency preparedness for better resilience to disasters

Project Action

While Mission East is working to deliver essential WASH kits for families temporary sheltered, the repair and reconstruction of damaged water facilities in affected villages is an important pre-requisite for the return and re-installation of displaced families. This proposal is planning to cover the repair of water facilities in affected villages including material for repair as well as structural mitigation to protect repaired water system from further disaster.

Tilpasningsdygtig beskæftigelse i handling: et initiativ fra civilsamfundet for en bred inddragelse af tilpasning til klimaændringer og katastrofeforebyggelse i udviklingsinitiativer i Karnali Zonen.

Project Background: 

Baggrund:

Nepal is highly prone to natural disasters and the adverse effect of climate change. In remote and mountainous areas, disasters from these hazards are usually of too small a scale to draw government attention and attract dedicated funding for disaster preparedness and climate change adaptation. But the frequency of such disasters is high, communities are extremely vulnerable and its accumulation at the level of a district is a serious threat to development initiatives.

The project proposes to address such “hidden disasters” by mainstreaming elements of disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation into district and community development initiatives and to advocate for such action in what we are calling an Adaptive Livelihood approach.

The project aim is to support 100 Civil Society Organisations in 3 districts of the remote mountainous Karnali region in: a) learning to adapt their actions to climate change and natural hazards and b) advocacy to Local Government for Adaptive Livelihood Action into district development planning.

 

Project Aims: 

Projektmål:

Overall development objective: To sustain community development initiatives in the face of the adverse effects of disasters and climate change in Karnali.

  1. Advocacy Objective: Civil Society Organizations can advocate for inclusive mainstreaming of DRR & CCA in district development plans.
  2. Thematic competencyObjective: Local government and CSOs have their skills enhanced to better mitigate the adverse effects of natural hazards and climate change within their development initiatives.
  3. Organizational capacity Objective: KIRDARC has increased their institutional capacity to mainstream Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaption into their projects portfolio and to advocate for it at national level.

 

Aktiviteter:

The implementation of the project will include trainings for CBOs, LNGOs and media on: advocacy for Adaptive Livelihood Action (ALA); DRR & CCA advocacy and a specific training module on Disaster Risk Reduction and inclusion (targeting women, Dalit, people with disability).
