Disaster Risk Management


Disaster Risk Management

Indreni Rural Development Centre (IRDC) Nepal's disaster risk management program focuses on reducing the risks and vulnerabilities faced by communities in Nepal. The program works on various aspects of disaster risk management, including:

  1. Hazard and risk assessment: IRDC conducts risk assessments to identify and analyze the hazards and risks faced by communities. This helps in identifying the most vulnerable areas and populations, as well as in developing appropriate mitigation measures.

  2. Capacity building: IRDC conducts training and awareness-raising programs to build the capacity of communities, local organizations, and government agencies in disaster risk management. This includes training on early warning systems, evacuation procedures, first aid, and search and rescue operations.

  3. Infrastructure development: IRDC works on developing and improving infrastructure, such as water supply systems, roads, and buildings, to make them more resilient to disasters. This includes building earthquake-resistant homes, installing rainwater harvesting systems, and constructing flood protection measures.

  4. Emergency response and relief: IRDC provides emergency response and relief to communities affected by disasters. This includes distributing food and shelter materials, providing medical support, and coordinating search and rescue operations.

  5. Advocacy and policy support: IRDC advocates for policies and programs that prioritize disaster risk reduction and management at the local and national levels. This includes working with government agencies to incorporate disaster risk reduction and management into their plans and policies.

Overall, IRDC's disaster risk management program focuses on building community resilience and reducing the impact of disasters on people's lives and livelihoods. The program emphasizes the importance of community participation and empowerment in all aspects of disaster risk management.
