District Disaster Risk Management Plan Arghakanchi District

Summary

Floods, landslides, droughts and other weather and climate-induced hazards are almost regular phenomena in Nepal. High socio-economic vulnerability of local communities and sectors – remote, rural, rugged and fragile geophysical environment mixing with unplanned settlement, population pressure, low social capacity to mitigate risk and prepare for difficulty –  create scenarios of high risk, inviting disaster. Those likely to suffer the most are the poor, marginalised and disadvantaged social groups, whose limited access to resources make them least able to adapt, prepare and cope to their precarious environment.
