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.

Programmatic Framework

The new LWF-WS Global Strategy identifies three major programmatic areas in which LWF Nepal already has a wealth of experience and a proven track record.

  • Quality Services
  • Livelihoods
  • Protection and social cohesion.

These three programmatic areas will now provide the basis for an integrated approach applicable in all LWF Nepal’s programs, considering emergency, recovery and development phases at individual, community and institution level.

Quality Services

LWF Nepal will emphasis on improving access of target communities to the government and other duty bearers for services, resources and opportunities during the time of emergency, recovery and development at the individual, community and institutional levels using Linking Relief, Rehabilitation and Development (LRRD) and Build Back Better (BBB) approaches. The local capacity will be strengthened by ensuring inclusive participation focusing on gender, ethnicity, youths, elderly and disability in all phases of project cycle management in line with Core Humanitarian Standard.


LWF Nepal takes sustainable livelihoods as a means to eliminate all forms of poverty and hunger and inequalities. LWF Nepal promotes climate smart, environment friendly and socio-economically viable options for sustainable livelihoods enhancing resiliency to all forms of shocks and stresses. It increases resiliency of individual, community and institutions to which it works through enhancing gender friendly, climate/environment smart technology transfer, and innovative practices

Protection and Social Cohesion

Protection and social cohesion are critical component so that ‘no harm’ and ‘leave no one behind’ commitment examines, ensures and empowers to build local voices for actions. LWF Nepal will follow national/international standards for quality and accountability. LWF Nepal will address protection of refugees, IDPs, host communities and people at risk taking into consideration of their multiple discriminations on the basis of intersectionality.

Organizational Effectiveness
