DOWNLOAD PDF

In March 2019, Democracy Resource Center Nepal (DRCN), with technical support from The Asia Foundation and financial support from the Ford Foundation, conducted field-level scoping research on the roles of local governments in reconstruction and disaster management. The objective was to document the perspectives, experiences, and needs of local governments to highlight challenges and opportunities and ultimately, contribute to improved disaster preparedness and future responses at the local level. This report is based on DRCN’s field observation in five districts between 12-21 March 2019. DRCN researchers visited 12 local units in these districts.
