People in Need (PIN) is a non-governmental, non-profit, international organization founded in the Czech Republic in 1992. PIN arrived in Nepal as part of a humanitarian response to the April 25, 2015 earthquake. Since its inception in Nepal, PIN has had a strong role advocating and addressing the needs of marginalized populations. This includes people who live in geographically remote areas of Nepal, people who are from historically marginalized ethnic groups, and those marginalized because of their age and/or gender identity (women and girls). More recently, PIN has also supported Nepal’s post-earthquake reconstruction efforts ensuring that the most vulnerable people are not left behind.

Project Summary:

The project titled Risk-Informed Landslide Management in Nepal’s Hill Areas is a 1.5-year program funded by ECHO. This project is implemented by a consortium comprising of PIN, NSET, SWN, CSRC, DU & NU with an aim to improve resilience of hill communities in four municipalities in Sindhupalchok and Dolakha districts through strengthening risk-informed landslide management at the local level.
