UNICEF Nepal’s Communication for Development (C4D) response in the immediate aftermath adopted a step-by-step approach, starting with media channels that were still functional, for the immediate dissemination of life-saving messages, collection of feedback on the needs and concerns of affected...

National Climate Change Policy, 2076 (2019) of Nepal- English

Climate Change is a serious problem emerging at global level. Poor and developing countries like Nepal are affected more compared to rich and developed ones.Despite its negligible contribution to total global emissions of green houses, Nepal is one of the countries that as high risks of adverse...

Characterization of hydro-meteorological drought in Nepal Himalaya: A case of Karnali River Basin

Himalayan river basin is marked by a complex topography with limited observational data. In the context of increasing extreme events, this study aims to characterize drought events in the Karnali River Basin (KRB). Firstly, historical data for 34-years (1981–2014) from ten different stations were...

Resilience Building Handbook

From the heart of Tanzania to the mountains of Ethiopia to the borders of Bangladesh and Nepal; VSO’s resilience programming is rapidly increasing. Volunteers, staff and partners have all played such a key role in this and already there is a positive impact on the children and adults involved....

Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities: Project set up, study set up, data collection, and...

This guide provides information and advice to help you gather high quality information working with the community. This guide has been written for everyone using the Flood Resilience Measurement for Communities (FRMC). This learning companion is intended to help you to get the most out of the...

Home Truths

This report from the Climate Coalition, backed by research from Priestley International Centre for Climate Change finds that extreme rainfall has increased by 40%, and the number of people in the UK facing floods during the winter is more than the population of Birmingham and Manchester combined....

This report is intended to provide guidance for the urban planning profession and those involved in city development on how to incorporate disaster risk reduction (DRR) and resilience into urban planning decisions and investments to support city governments’ resilience objectives and strategies....

Flood Resilience in China

Following devastating 2012 floods in Beijing, flood prevention quickly climbed China’s agenda. A year later, President Xi Jinping announced at a conference on urbanisation that cities should act ‘like sponges’. Read about what action has followed and what the results have been in this case...

Co-designing climate services to support adaptation to natural hazards: two case studies from Sweden

This SEI discussion brief shows how co-designed climate services can better support adaptation processes by focussing on users’ needs, and gaining greater understanding of the challenges they face in making real-world policy decisions.

Response time to flood events using a social vulnerability index (ReTSVI)

Current methods to estimate evacuation time during a natural disaster do not consider the socioeconomic and demographic characteristics of the population. This article develops the Response Time by Social Vulnerability Index (ReTSVI). ReTSVI combines a series of modules that are pieces of...

Supporting decision‐making on urban flood control alternatives through a recovery deficit...

The occurrence of floods poses a challenge to cities, resulting in tragedies and losses in watersheds unprepared to receive massive amounts of water. Therefore, studies to define impacts caused by successive flood events are essential to quantify long‐term losses and allow feasibility analysis of...

Collaborative Modeling With Fine‐Resolution Data Enhances Flood Awareness, Minimizes Differences...

Existing needs to manage flood risk in the United States are underserved by available flood hazard information. This contributes to an alarming escalation of flood impacts amounting to hundreds of billions of dollars per year and countless disrupted lives and affected communities. Making...

Flood Size Increases Nonlinearly Across the Western United States in Response to Lower...

Many mountainous and high‐latitude regions have experienced more precipitation as rain rather than snow due to warmer winter temperatures. Further decreases in the annual snow fraction are projected under continued global warming, with potential impacts on flood risk. Here, we quantify the size...

Modeling migration patterns in the USA under sea level rise

Sea level rise in the United States will lead to large scale migration in the future. We propose a framework to examine future climate migration patterns using models of human migration. Our framework requires that we distinguish between historical versus climate driven migration and recognizes...
