An EWS conference was held in Kathmandu earlier in 2012. As a bi-product of this a “Best Practice” case study publication was compiled. Brief workshop notes can be also found in the document library.
Three display boards have also been installed at DEOC with the financial, equipment and technical support from SAFER-Nepal Project a project of Mercy Corps Nepal. The boards show the water levels of Karnali at Chisapani, Mohana at Malakheti and rainfall level of Bhaktapur, Nigali. The people of downstream communities of Phulbari, Pawera, Ratanpur, Lalbojhi, Dhansinghpur, Narayanpur, Tikapur, Durgauli, Sahajpur and Nigali will be benefited by the display boards.
This booklet provides an overview of SEWIN Project’s activities and how these activities have helped the community to become resilient towards flood in the form of different case studies.
This publication is a result of ICIMOD's collaboration with the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), and national partners in China, India, Nepal, and Pakistan since 2008 to document, assess, and over the long term - strengthen local strategies for adaptation to flood and drought in and downstream from mountain catchments.
This report contains a number of case studies from around the world. Together with the short film project ‘ Local voices, global choices’ they highlight what can be achieved when local voices are respected and different actors come together to form strategic partnerships to work collaboratively to reduce disaster risks.
