Flood Early Warning Systems in Nepal; A Gender Perspective (ICIMOD Working Paper 2014/4)


This document is an assessment report that has been conducted in four countries to improve understanding of existing early warning systems and improve their effectiveness. The objective of the study was to assess the systems from a gender perspective to support the development of timely, reliable, and effective systems that can save lives and livelihoods. The assessment has examined the status of flood early warning systems, conducted gender analysis to understand the participation of women and their roles and responsibilities in early warning systems, and has developed some recommendations on developing effective systems. This report presents the findings from Nepal, but the findings are relevant for those working in the HKH region and beyond.
