Civil Society Organizations’ Outlook on Effectiveness of Humanitarian Disaster Governance in 2020 Monsoon Disaster Response


This study report by Dr. Durga Prasad Upadhyay and Dr. Raju Thapa situates humanitarian disaster governance primarily within the broader framework of organizing, planning, and application of measures preparing for, responding to, and recovering from disasters. It consists the assessment of key major disaster response policy instruments and practices in Nepal in the context of the 2020 monsoon disaster response amid the COVID-19 impacts creating a message that policy review must take place through a whole of society approach where the role of humanitarian CSOs is critical, and suggesting that role of NDRRMA shouldn't be circumvented, rather it needs to be equipped to manage all kinds and scales of future disasters without creating other parallel structures like CCMC.
