Evaluations: Transboundary Flood Resilience in Nepal and India (Case Study)

Through the Nepal-India Transboundary Flood Resilience (TBR) project, Lutheran World Relief (LWR) is collaborating with Grameen Development Services (GDS), SAHAMATI, Dan Church Aid, and Integrated Development Foundation (IDF) to assist communities located along the India-Nepal border in strengthening their resilience to the devastating effects of flooding. The project aims to do this through implementing integrated strategies to improve Early Warning Systems (EWS), strengthening government and community capacities in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), and building resilient livelihoods through cross-border community-based structures. Seizing the opportunity to apply a rare transboundary approach to development, LWR launched the TBR project in 2013 and
reached 51,966 community members in 136 villages across India and Nepal by the end of 2016. The project’s success led to the funding of a second phase in 2017, expanding the reach to 71,300 community members in 178 villages.
