Nepal Earthquake

Pragya works in a number of regions that are climatically and geographically prone to natural disasters, including sudden-onset flooding from cloud bursts and glacial lake outbursts, as well as landslides and forest fires. With climate change and human pressures, these disasters are increasing in frequency and severity. Through geographic isolation, rough terrain and inadequate state resources, last- mile and marginalised communities are the least resilient to such disasters and are disproportionately hard-hit, suffering severe immediate and longer-term impacts, yet are often neglected in established post-disaster relief and rehabilitation efforts.

Comprehensive in its scope, Pragya’s disaster management programme comprises the full package of disaster management. Our award-winning, pre-disaster preparedness model is helping remote communities become more resilient to disasters, facilitating locally-led preparedness for reduced vulnerability. With our long expertise in disaster-prone regions and our well-established links with communities and local authorities, Pragya is uniquely placed to provide timely and effective emergency response in the immediate aftermath of disasters, and in this section you’ll find some examples of our life-saving emergency relief work. Completing the programme is our mid / long-term rehabilitation of disaster-hit communities, employing localised solutions to rebuild the lives of those who have lost everything, and reinvigorating communities as a whole.
