Introduction

People in Need (PIN) is a non-governmental, non-profit, international organization founded in the Czech Republic in 1992. PIN arrived in Nepal as part of a humanitarian response to the April 25, 2015 earthquake. Since its inception in Nepal, PIN has had a strong role advocating and addressing the needs of marginalized populations. This includes people who live in geographically remote areas of Nepal, people who are from historically marginalized ethnic groups, and those marginalized because of their age and/or gender identity (women and girls). More recently, PIN has also supported Nepal's post-earthquake reconstruction efforts ensuring that the most vulnerable people are not left behind.

 

Project Summary:

The project titled Risk-Informed Landslide Management in Nepal's Hill Areas is a 1.5-year program funded by European Union. This project is implemented by a consortium comprising of PIN, NSET, SWN, CSRC, DU & NU with an aim to improve resilience of hill communities in four municipalities in Sindhupalchok and Dolakha districts through strengthening risk-informed landslide management at the local level. The core objective is to work with local authorities and disaster management institutions, key actors involved in road construction and infrastructure projects, communities and national government to increase their understanding of landslide hazards, the risks they pose and the impact of human disturbance on communities exposed to hazard risks.

 

Scope of work

Consortium Field Coordinator under the Risk-Informed Landslide Management in Nepal's Hill Areas project will be responsible for facilitating smooth implementation of project activities through close coordination with project partners, government authorities, and major DRM stakeholders at Federal and Provincial level.
