National Consultant – Urban DRR Expert


Description of the assignment: This project is being implemented since June 2019 in core urban areas of three at-risk cities, one each from Terai (Bharatpur Metropolitan City), Hills (Bhimeshwor Municipality) and Valley (Lalitpur Metropolitan City), that are representatives of other cities across Nepal. The project aims to create a shared understanding on urban disaster risks and evolve mechanisms and measures that aids the communities, municipal governments, and private sector to address the risks and effectively respond to emergencies, with specific focus on vulnerable populations. In achieving its aim, the project contributes to enhance understanding of the communities and local authorities of at-risk urban areas and private sector about underlying multi-hazard risks and vulnerabilities, identifies and supports in key areas to undertake system strengthening and demonstrates possible structural and non-structural interventions to enable effective, coordinated emergency response and risk reduction. The Project commenced in June 2019 with an end date of February 2021. However, the Project implementation was directly impacted by the lockdown and travel restrictions imposed by the government to contain the spread of COVID-19. Hence, the project was granted a no-cost extension, with some modifications, until 31 October 2021. Thus, the total duration of the project is 29 months, between June 2019 - October 2021. As the project comes to an end on 31 October 2021, UNDP is planning to commission a final evaluation to identify and document achievements of project outputs, challenges, lessons learned and best practices. The findings of the final evaluation will provide guidance for the way forward for future course of action. Thus, the final evaluation report is expected to include specific recommendations for future interventions.
