Under the project, GEAG has provided technical assistance to the Government of Bihar for initiating action on risk-informed planning for children and vulnerable communities in rural and urban areas through the implementation of a resilient village programme.

In this process, a comprehensive document explaining the step-by-step process and toolkits of implementation and training modules as envisaged in the DRR roadmap of Bihar was developed in close collaboration with the Bihar State Disaster Management Authority (BSDMA) and UNICEF Bihar.

GEAG has developed guideline documents to involve youth and adolescents as 'agents of change'/'DRR and Climate Change Sentinels' and linked them up with the National Service Scheme (NSS), National Cadet Corps (NCC), and Nehru Yuva Kendra (NYK).

  • BSDMA-approved guidelines, programme toolkit, and training packages for the 'Resilient Village Programme' developed.
  • An urban risk resilience action plan for agriculture, health, education, ICDS, PHED, urban local bodies, and Panchayati Raj was developed.
  • Rooftop rainwater conservation potential is estimated.
