BRCH Introduction

Building Resilience to Climate-Related Hazards (BRCH) project aims to transition Nepal’s hydro-meteorological services into a modern service-oriented system that will build resilience today as well as adaptive capacity for the future. It intends to enhance government capacity to mitigate climate related hazards by improving the accuracy and timeliness of weather and flood forecasts for disaster preparedness by the general population and warnings for climate-vulnerable communities. The project will also support agricultural management information system services to help farmers mitigate climate-related hazards.

The PPCR is a program of the Climate Investment Funds (CIF), administered by the Multilateral Development Banks (in Nepal the Asian Development Bank, the International Finance Corporation and the World Bank) to support implementation of country-led programs and investments. The overall objective of the PPCR is to demonstrate ways to integrate climate risk and resilience into core development planning. Nepal accepted the offer to participate in the PPCR on May 13, 2009. The Building Resilience to Climate-Related Hazards (BRCH) project started on 20 June 2013 in Nepal after signing an agreement between the Government of Nepal and the World Bank on 30 April 2013.
