APP Updates


Asian Disaster Preparedness Centre (ADPC) and National Disaster Risk Reduction Centre (NDRC) Nepal has a good relationship for a very long time around 2010. However, in 2016 when APP introduced in Nepal NDRC and ADPC became strategically engaged in DRRM policy advocacy and some joint initiatives. After 10 years of informal association and affiliation, ADPC and NDRC Nepal came into the collaborative partnership in 2020 under the initiative of the Asian Preparedness Partnership (APP) and has been functioning as an implementing agency of APP Nepal program under the Nepal Preparedness Partnership (NPP) lead by the Ministry of Home Affairs/National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Authority, (NDRRMA) Nepal.
