Project Background

Nepal is prone to a range of natural disasters, including floods, landslides, fires, earthquakes, and disease outbreaks. In the wake of recent tragedies in the country, including the massive 2015 Gorkha earthquake, USAID introduced Tayar Nepal activity. Tayar Nepal is USAID’s flagship disaster preparedness and response project for Nepal. Tayar—which means “prepared”—strengthens the capacity of Nepal’s disaster risk management (DRM) and preparedness institutions. At the national level, Tayar Nepal builds the capacity of disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM) institutions, which includes Ministry of Federal Affairs (MoFAGA), Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA), National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Authority (NDRRMA). At the municipal level, Tayar Nepal’s interventions support municipalities to fulfill their DRM roles in the broader federal disaster management system by building capacity in preparedness, response, and helping them understand and address the risks that face their constituents.
