This case study is part of a broader ProVention Consortium initiative aimed at collecting and analyzing community risk assessment cases. This paper presents preliminary findings of a program in the Tarai of Nepal on disaster risk reduction (DRR) and adaptation to climate change. The study includes pilot testing of some strategies identified in four sites within the Bagmati and the Rohini river basins. Adaptive strategies for four communities in these two river basins have been identified using a number of tools. These are segregated as adaptation-specific interventions and underlying systems for adaptation.
