This project factsheet describes the results of the project on risk mapping for strategic planning of shelter response implemented in Kathmandu, Nepal, under the auspices of the Global Emergency Shelter Cluster .
The aim of the initiative is to support the systematic incorporation of risk management into urban planning and city governance and development. The goal of the initiative is to improve capacities to predict and address future post-disaster shelter recovery needs as well as to manage information about on-going risk after a disaster and their implications for shelter planning. This improved capacity will ensure rapid and efficient shelter provision after a disaster and will help to optimize resource utilization at local, national and international levels.
