Technical Services for Strengthening Risk Sensitive Land Use Planning and Implementation in Nepal
September 2011 - February 2013
Location: Kathmandu Nepal
Sponsored by: UNDP Nepal

Project Summary

The National Society for Earthquake Technology (NSET) has partnered with EMI to implement  Risk Sensitive Land Use Planning (RSLUP) in Nepal. NSET and EMI provided technical support through consultations, dialogues (two rounds), advocacy and planning for integration of land use planning in local planning processes and building by-laws in selected municipalities.

This project is in support of the Comprehensive Disaster Risk Management Programme (CDRMP) in accordance with the Nepal Risk Reduction consortium. The CDRMP aims to strengthen the institutional and legislative aspects of DRM in Nepal, by building the capacities of Ministry of Home Affairs, other ministries, and local governments. The CDRMP will also establish strategic linkages between DRM and development sectors in Kathmandu Valley.

 Project Accomplishments/Deliverables

 KMC RSLUP Review and Consolidation

This initial consolidation of Risk-Sensitive Land Use Plan (RSLUP) for KMC is a continuation of efforts by KMC, Nepal Government Ministries and departments(i.e. MOHA, MOPPW, MOLD, DUDBC, and KVTDC), and by scientific organizations such as NSET and EMI with financial support from UNDP-Nepal. It presents a reviewed RSLUP document which was crafted in 2010. The development of the RSLUP received the backing and support of public officials from within KMC, as well as from other ministries and agencies of the Government of Nepal (GoN).

Risk Sensitive Land Use Planning (RSLUP) Blended Training End of Course Report

This report presents the approach and outcome of the Risk Sensitive Land Use Planning Blended Training from March 12 to April 29, 2012. It discusses the existing Global Facility for Disaster Risk Reduction (GFDRR) training platform, the training needs assessment, the customizations made, the process and the results of the customized training. This report is submitted as part of the last set of deliverables of the project under the Strengthening Risk Sensitive Land Use Planning and Implementation (RSLUP) in Nepal Project.

Framework for Making Kathmandu Valley Development Concept Plan Risk Sensitive

The report provides a view and a framework on how the Kathmandu Valley Development Concept, published in 2001 can be made risk sensitive or disaster risk reduction and management (DRRM) compliant. In view of the need identified by the Government of Nepal, to integrate disaster risk concerns in the development planning process and land use plans of the Kathmandu Valley, the study looks into the planning process and outputs at the Valley level, and looks into the various aspects of its planning system where disaster risk reduction (and climate change and variability risk aspects) may be introduced (entry points)and thus making it risk sensitive and supportive of the sustainable development envisioned in 2001. The report relied heavily in the documentation of the planning exercise and outputs of the endorsed KV Development Concept Plan.

Selection of Municipalities and Urbanizing Village Development Committees (VDCs) for RSLUP

This document is the main component of Deliverable 4: Selection of Municipalities and Urbanizing VDCs for RSLUP of the project. The document serves as a guide for the Kathmandu Valley Development Authority and municipalities in formulating their risk sensitive land use plans. This report is submitted as part of the last set of deliverables of the project under the Strengthening Risk Sensitive Land Use Planning and Implementation (RSLUP) in Nepal Project.
