Program Overview

LWF Nepal focuses in the areas of Disaster Risk Reduction and Emergency Preparedness and Response, Sustainable Livelihoods, and Community-led Actions for Governance and Justice in an integrated manner to build synergy and improve development impacts. The overall program framework is based on the strategies for achieving changes in three domains for the priority populations’ resilient livelihoods with dignity: (i) Access to assets and services, (ii) Agency, voice and influence, and (iii) Rules, regulations and institutions

Disaster Risk Reduction, Emergency Preparedness and Response

We focus on disaster risk reduction, emergency preparedness and response through various measures such as supporting communities to develop contingency plans, establish appropriate early warning and assistance systems, and strengthening food-security measures and community shelters. We emphasize on building the capacity of communities and duty bearers who support communities in preparing for disasters and mitigating their risks.

Sustainable Livelihood

Enhancing people’s capabilities and access, diversifying their livelihood options through social and economic empowerment, increasing income through local economic growth and consequently improving the quality of lives are LWF Nepal's  main areas of work. It considers livelihood as part of a complex web of socio-economic, institutional and political development. The organization also enhances market-led approach to sustainable income through enterprise development, technical and vocational skills.

Community-led Actions for Governance and Justice

LWF Nepal emphasizes on actions that enable the poor and oppressed people for equitable access to resources and services. At the local level, it supports to enhance knowledge and capacity of rights holders to understand and claim their rights responsibly. Collaboration with relevant duty bearers at district and national levels is emphasized for improving their services and responsibilities to ensure the rights of the priority populations.
