Project Objective

The Project was designed primarily in two components i.e. hard and soft components. Hard components were focused on structural and non-structural measures, directed towards two type of priority mitigation schemes i.e. flood protection walls and land stabilization. The soft components were focused on building the capacities of community members and volunteers in targeted districts to be able to better cope with impending hazards or disasters.

Furthermore, the priority areas of intervention under this proposed project taken from NDMP priorities are as follow:


  • Strengthening readiness of the communities through CBDRM.
  • Develop volunteer force (NDMF) for effective response.
  • Structural measures in flood prone areas (river works: embankment strengthening and protection walls), Land stabilization and drought mitigation measures.
Project Outcome

Increased capacity of the communities to reduce disaster risk, through better planning, preparedness, response and resource allocation at governmental and community levels.

Project Impact

People exposed to natural and climate induced disasters (especially women) are more resilient to natural disasters.

Project Description

PRCS focusied on four main outputs to achieve specific results. The outputs will establish mechanisms to build resilience by creating the ability to plan and respond to disasters through the establishment of Community Disaster Management Committees, the development of rural and urban level Disaster Risk Management Plans and strengthening Early Warning Systems. Households will also be encouraged to take up conflict and gender sensitive resilience options by adopting community capacity building approaches focusing on prevention, mitigation and adaptation. Disaster resilient and climate adaptive farming, livelihood protection, infrastructure and clean energy will also be promoted. Similarly, District Fund Management Committees will be established to develop management plans for funding, which will support disaster risk management at the local level. While the fourth output is linked with increasing the institutional capacity in PRCS to address issues of gender & social safeguards to ensure mainstreaming and inclusion (gender, environment, social safeguarding and human rights issues) throughout the project cycle to protect dignity and rights of people through inclusive approaches.
