The outputs will be (a) heavily damaged schools reconstructed and improved; (b) unsafe schools retrofitted and disaster risk reduced; and (c) institutional capacity for disaster resilience strengthened.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Three natural disasters threaten school infrastructure in Nepal: earthquakes, landslides and flood. Records show that the risks linked to an earthquake in terms of casualties, number of affected persons and physical damages remains the greatest of all. Making school infrastructure resilient to earthquakes is a priority and doing so would make them resistant to flood and landslide damages as well.

The Project would mainstream the reconstruction and retrofitting of the most vulnerable schools in the 14 affected districts of Nepal. A DRR program would complement the retrofitting effort. The proposed Project would pilot a community-driven retrofitting by local government of 3 schools in selected municipalities. The objective is also to train the remote communities to replicate the good practice in future government funding.
