CARE Nepal Implemented DIPECHO/SAMADHAN-III, the community based disaster risk management (CBDRM) project with the support from the European Commission through its Humanitarian Aid Department. This project has been a milestone for CARE Nepal in terms of reaching out to the most vulnerable populations in the Far western region of the country.
This publication is a reflection of our experiences, learning and achievements through the disaster risk management initiative. CARE Nepal has been committed to building disaster resilient communities through initiatives that have helped make a difference. SAMADHAN II is a continuation of those endeavors.
The information included in the book has been aimed at giving an overview of the disaster scenario in Nepal and give a human face to the project through stories from the field.
The book also elaborates on how our CBDRM efforts have changed the community perspective, ensuring poorest, most vulnerable and marginalized understand the simple and practical actions to protect lives and assets in case of natural disasters.
