In August 2012, Flagship 4 organised an urban CBDRR workshop to discuss the various efforts of partners in addressing this issue. It was determined in this workshop that many partner organisations are working in the field of urban CBDRR and greater coordination of activities is required to maximize implementation at all levels. Given this need for greater coordination, participating organisations agreed that additional working group was not preferable, some form of coordination and information sharing is necessary at the operational level at a minimum. At the request of implementing agencies Flagship 4 will coordinate a monthly Urban CBDRR coordination meeting at the operational level.

Overall purpose of meetings:

The Urban CBDR Operational Coordination Meetings will act as a coordination, knowledge sharing and ‘think take’ for Urban CBDRR issues in Nepal. The meeting group. Comprised of program managers and staff, will also provide technical guidance on urban aspects of community-based disaster risk reduction.
