MERCY CORPS OVERVIEW

Mercy Corps is an international, non-governmental humanitarian relief and development agency that exists to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive, and just communities. Mercy Corps works in 40 countries, and has been present in Nepal since 2005. Mercy Corps’ current work in Nepal focuses on agriculture, food security, disaster risk reduction and climate change, access to finance, and youth engagement.

Mercy Corps Nepal is implementing DRR programs since 2007 in Nepal. One of the major learning of traditional DRR approaches was that they have proven effective at saving lives, but are less effective at mitigating economic impact of disasters and are rarely tied to strategies to build economic security and increase incomes. Mercy Corps has commenced implementation of an innovative 3-year program titled the “Managing Risks through Economic Development –Phase II” (M-RED -II) in Nepal as a continuation of MRED program. M-RED will continue with the model that addresses risk reduction together with economic development to promote economic security.

MRED II:

The M-RED program will achieve three outcomes:

  1. Strengthened Disaster Preparedness and Response Systems for Protecting and saving Lives and Property.
  2. Beneficiaries’ livelihoods are more resilient to ecological hazards and/or results of climate change.
  3. Produce and disseminate research and learning for expanded impact of integrated approaches to building resilience to natural hazards and climate change.
