1 Lesson Learned from AUDMP/ NSET-Nepal NSET-Nepal AUDMP Working Group Meeting, Bandung Shiva Bahadur Pradhanang Ramesh Guragain 21 March 2002

2 NSET-Nepal Hazard Mapping and Risk Assessment § Use available information and built upon that § Research should be applied § Look at the forest not the trees § The methodology should be simple based upon available data rather than new data generation § Adapt methodology from outside to local situation § Start with simple methodology and gradually built on § Involve all stakeholders

3 NSET-Nepal Mitigation Planning and Implementation § What is acceptable and doable is more important than what is necessary as indicated by sciences § Approach should be gradual increasing safety § Involve all stakeholders in planning § Select initiative that insures maximum participants by stakeholders § Recognize potential of community participation § Stop increasing vulnerabilities; Decrease existing vulnerabilities

4 NSET-Nepal Policy and Institutional Frameworks § So far policy and institutional frameworks geared largely towards response, there is a need to change the focus to mitigation § Look at existing systems and design possible changes § Use step by step approach § Focus on Building Code implementation, land use planning, and increase in emergency response system and capabilities § Streamline disaster risk reduction into development process-find common denominators and act § Decentralize Policy

5 NSET-Nepal Evaluation and Public Awareness § There should be education and public awareness elements in each activities § Concept like ESD are easy to institutionalized and can be used for solving problems in theme 1, 2 and 3 § Not transfer of knowledge but also the transfer of ownership § Target all levels from individual, neighborhood to central government § Target all sectors (Health, Transportation…)

6 NSET-Nepal Promoting Safer Building Construction § Engineered l Training to professionals l Follow up of rules and regulation § Non-engineered l Use and provision of mandatory rules of thumb l Development/transfer of appropriate technology l Training to masons (Grass root levels technicians) l Awareness raising to community Building production mechanism Engineered Non-engineered Resources to train necessary manpower Non-engineered Engineered

7 NSET-Nepal Community Participation in Disaster Mitigation § All activities should be based upon the participation of all stakeholders including community § Consider lack of state-of-the-art knowledge and low awareness level § Understanding the nature of community is important l Priority (May be high for recurrent/frequent hazards but not for infrequent/rare occurrence hazards) l Generally, do not have strong inertia l But need to develop trust Low-tech approach Less complexities in implementation Transparency
