IFRC implemented an integrated community-based resilience project in the Koshi River basin since June 2013 to December 2016 and World Bank was one of the partners to support this. This project was implemented in 25 most vulnerable communities of 10 village development committees (VDCs), across five districts (Saptari, Sunsari, Udayapur, Khotang and Bhojpur) of Nepal. Health, WASH, DRR, livelihood, organizational development and capacity building were the major components of the project carried out in areas that are at risk of floods in the plains (Terai), areas at risk of landslides in the hill and mountain districts. The overall goal of the project was to have the 25 target communities in the Koshi region reduce their exposure and vulnerability to the impact of disasters such as floods, landslides and other hazards, including as those due to climate change, and have their overall resilience enhanced within three years.
