The project  launched on 29 November 2020 with support from the GEF-Least Developed Countries Fund and UNDP.


Input: 

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.


Outputs: 

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


Outcome:

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.


Impact: 

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.
