The project launched on 29 November 2020 with support from the GEF-Least Developed Countries Fund and UNDP.
Activity 1.1.1: Multi-hazard climate-responsive hydro meteorological hazard, risk and socio-economic vulnerability modelling and mapping methods and tools introduced for floods, landslides, soil erosion and droughts and embedded in IWM procedures
Activity 1.1.2: Existing catchment prioritization tools harmonized and updated with modelling output from 1.1.1 for use across all IWM-relevant departments and sectors
Activity1.1.3: Revise watershed condition assessment methodologies and guidelines
Activity1.1.4: Condition assessment undertaken for target watersheds using new modelling and assessment tools, guidelines and protocols
Activity1.1.5: Establish project SDI to act as central repository for all data and to facilitate data sharing and single data sources, including mobile app versions.
Activity 1.2.1: Review institutional arrangements and device necessary institutional coordination for IWM
Activity 1.2.2: Establish centralized IWM coordination platforms, comprised of all relevant institutions, to develop harmonized, overarching IWM policies, guidelines, standards and protocols and to oversee cross- sectorial cooperation on IWM
Activity1.2.3: Revise national institutional guidelines, standards and data sharing protocols for IWM across all institutions to include, national policy on watershed management, revised harmonised climate-risk based sub-watershed vulnerability assessment, prioritization guidelines, guidelines for GESI mainstreaming in IWM, Sop’s for maintenance of watershed management systems established, revised guidelines for infrastructure, and revised SCWM program.
Activity1.2.4: Establish institutional framework at local level for IWM to include, as a minimum, sub-national disaster risk management committees (municipality and ward level) and revised guidelines for sub-watershed management planning at local level. Coordination platform at local level across WMOs and municipalities.
Output 1.1: Watershed condition assessments updated and hydro meteorological hazard, risk, vulnerability and socio-economic model of climate change impacts delivered to underpin watershed management decisions across the sectors
Output 1.2: Climate change risks addressed in watershed rehabilitation and management framework
Output 1.3: Specialized technical training and technology delivered
Output 1.4: Enforcement mechanisms for watershed management and land policies embedding climate change considerations, including legal incentives to enable PES
Output 2.1: Based on risk and vulnerability assessments, integrated, adaptive sub-watershed management plans developed for four target sub-watersheds to guide investments
Output 2.2: Water and drainage control measures implemented at the sub-catchment level, including water retention structures and catchment ponds with groundwater recharge, controlled drainage and with maintenance systems established
Output 2.3: Watershed rehabilitation, Conservation farming and integrated agro-forestry practices introduced interspersed with fodder and controlled fuel wood production (including efficient stoves) with active involvement of women
Output 2.4: Community stewardship programs established and implemented within the selected sub-watersheds with focus on women and marginal communities
Output 2.5: Knowledge management and learning
The project focuses on two key outcomes:
1) Establishing an integrated watershed management framework to address climate change induced floods and droughts; and
2) Introducing and scaling-up of integrated watershed management practices in Dudh Koshi, covering 844 square kilometers of watershed areas and benefiting 121,606 vulnerable people.
Using watersheds as organizing units for planning and implementation of natural resources, management and resilient livelihood development is an approach to effectively tackle an immediate and long-term climate risk reduction, in relation to floods and droughts.
