  1. 1. People’s Declaration on Disaster Risk Reduction, Nepal<br />We, the people of Nepal who are under constant threat of disasters, who are affected by disasters and vulnerable to the growing incidences of calamities, hereby declare that:<br />k|sf]kaf6 kLl8t / al9/x]sfdxfdf/Laf6 ;+s6f;Gg tyfnuftf/ ljkbsf] rk]6fdf k/]sfxfdL g]kfnLhgtflgDgcg';f/sf] k|ltj4tf JoQmub{5f} . <br />
  2. 2. Disaster Risk Reduction is people’s rights. It entails ensuring security to people who are affected by and vulnerable to disasters. We urge the government of Nepal to immediately take further measures for a comprehensive disaster risk reduction policy that emphasizes addressing the special needs and concerns of differentially vulnerable people. <br />ljkbhf]lvdGo"gLs/0f hgtfsf] g};lu{s clwsf/ xf] . o;n] ljkbk|lt ;+s6f;Gg tyfk|efljtdflg;nfO{ ;'/Iffsf] ;'lgZroub{5 . xfdLcfXjfgub{5F}FF ls g]kfn ;/sf/n] ljleGgk|sf/n] ;+s6f;Gg dflg;x?sf] cfjZostfnfO{ ;dfj]z ul/ ;+lIfKtljkbhf]lvdGo"lgs/0fsf] gLltNofcf];<br /> <br />
  3. 3. The rights of people can be protected only through appropriate legal and policy provisions. We seek immediate adoption of the Disaster Management Act 2063 (Revised and submitted to the government in February 2007) by the constituent assembly, <br />hgtfsfclwsf/ pko'Stsfg'gL / gLltut Joj:yf4f/f ;'/lIftug{ ;lsG5 . xfdLk|sf]k Joj:yfkg P]g @)^# - km/j/L @))&df ;/sf/af6 ;+zf]wgeO k]z ePsf] _sf] ;+ljwfg ;ef4f/f tTsfnkfl/t ePsf] rfxG5f} .<br />
  4. 4. We believe that efficient governance and a prosperous nation cannot be achieved without including people in the decision making process. Community is the first impact receiver of any disaster and the first responder too. We urge the government to ensure that policy framework and government decisions should invariably include people’s participation at various and appropriate levels.<br />xfdLljZjf;' ub{5f} lsk|efsf?Lzf;g / ;d[4 /fi6| hgtfnfO{ lg0f{o k|lqmofdf ;dfj]z gu/L k|fKtug{ ;ls+b}g . ;d'bfon] s'g} klgk|sf]ksf] c;/ ;jeGbfklxn] ef]U5 / k|ltlqmof lbG5 . xfdLcfXjfgub{5f} ls ;/sf/n] lgltutsfo{;+/rgfsf] lgdf{0f u/f]; / hgtfnfO{ ;/sf/L lg0f{o k|lqmofdfljleGgpko'Sttxdf ;xeflutfsf] ;'lglZrt u/f]; .<br />
  5. 5. We recognize the important role played by international NGOs, civil society, local NGOs, donors and government in supporting disaster risk reduction initiatives. We believe that there is tremendous scope for us to build upon our achievements and scale up our initiatives at community level. We seek continued support of the key stakeholders who have been working with us to enhance our disaster resilience.<br />xfdLcGt/fli6|o u};;, gful/s ;dfh, :yfgLo u};;, bftf, / ;/sf/n] k|sf]k hf]lvdGo"lgs/0fdf ePsfk|ofzsf] ;/fxgfub{5f|} . xfdLljZjf; ub{5f} ls ;d'bfotxdfxfdf| pknJwLx?

  6. 6. We believe that a culture of risk reduction has to be encouraged at all levels, from the grassroots people to the highest offices of the government. We urge the government to build capacities of its own systems to mainstream risk reduction at all levels and invest in building community capacity to better respond to and prepare themselves to disasters.<br />xfdLljZjf; ub{5f} lshf]lvdGo"lgs/0fsf] ;+:sf/nfO{ tNnf] txsfdflg; b]lv ;/sf/L pRrsfo{fno ;Ddk|f]T;flxtul/g' kb{5 . xfdLhf]lvdGo"lgs/0fnfO{ d"nwf/dfNofpg ;/sfn] cfkmgf k|0ffnLx?sf] ;a} txdfIfdtfljsf; u/f]; / k|sf]ksf] ;fdgfug]{ ;d'bfosf] Ifdtflgdf{0fsf nflunufgLug{ ;/sf/ ;+u cfXjfgub{5f} .<br />
  7. 7. We believe that mainstreaming disaster risk reduction within the development process and addressing rights of disaster affected people needs priority investments. We urge the government, donors and international community to listen to the voices of people and extend their fullest support to our desire to build a risk free nation.<br />k|sf]k hf]lvdGo"lgs/0f ljsf; k|lqmofd"nk|jfxLs/0f ug{ tyfk|sf]k k|efljtdflg;x?sf] clwsf/nfO{ ;Daf]wgug{ k|fyldstfsf ;fynufgLul/g' kb{5 eGg] xfdLljZjf; ub{5f} . ;/sf/, bftf / cGt/fli6|o ;d'bfo;+u hgtfsf] cfjfh ;'Gg / hf]lvdd'St /fi6| agfpg] xfd|f] rfxgfnfO{ ;Dk"0f{ ?kn] ;xof]u ug{ xfdLcfXjfgub{5f} .<br />
  8. 8. We understand the importance of working together. We declare our underlying commitment to the process of comprehensive disaster risk reduction in Nepal and assure our support to initiatives from government, donors, international community and other national stakeholders to build a Risk Free Nepal<br />xfdL ;xsfo{sf] dxTjnfO{ a'emb5f} . g]kfndfk|sf]k hf]lvdGo"lgs/0f k|lqmofk|ltxfd|f] cGt/lglxt k|ltj4tf /x]sf] 3f]if0f ub{5f}+ tyf ;/sf/, bftf, cGt/lfi6|o ;d'bfo / c? /fli6|o ;/f]sf/jfnfx?n] hf]lvdd'St g]kfnagfpg u/]sfk|of;x?nfO{ ;xof]u ug]{ xfd|f] k|ltj4tf hfx]/ ub{5f} .<br />
  9. 9. We believe that a dream of a New Nepal cannot be realized without addressing the inherent risks posed by disasters. We believe that disaster risk reduction is not an option for this country, but an essential pre-requisite that defines its development process.<br />xfdLljZjf; ub{5f} lsgofF g]kfnsf] ;kgfk|sf]k4f/f cGt/ lglxthf]lvd ;Daf]wggx'Fbf ;Dd ;fsf/ x'Fb}g . k|sf]k hf]lvdGo"lgs/0f Pp6f ljsNkgeO /fi6|sf] nfluljsf; k|lqmofsf] cTofjZoskIfxf] eGg] xfd|f] c6n ljZjf; 5.<br />
  10. 10. We once again reiterate our commitment to work with the government towards realizing our goal of risk free Nepal<br />xfdLhf]lvdd'St g]kfnagfpg] xfd|f] nIo k"/f ug{ ;/sf/ ;+u ldn]/ sfo{ ug]{ k|ltj4tf k"g Ps k6s bf]xf]¥ofpg rfxG5f}<br />
