Fact Sheets: Building Transboundary Flood Resilience in Nepal and India

Through the Transboundary Flood Resilience (TBR) project, LWR is assisting 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 cross-border Early Warning Systems (EWS), strengthening government and community capacities in Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), and building resilient livelihoods. 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 this expanded phase of the project, reaching 71,300 community members in 178 villages between February 2017 and July 2018.
