The Regional Climate Risk Reduction Project (2009-2010), a pilot initiative from UNDP and the European Community Humanitarian Aid Office, spanned across four countries of the Hindu Kush Himalayan region: India, Bhutan, Nepal, and Pakistan. In a limited time span of 15 months, the project worked towards generating awareness on climatic variability, and increasing community preparedness against hydro-meteorological disasters. Partnering with communities, administrative authorities, government bodies, civil society organizations, and the media, various measures were undertaken to strengthen the internal coping capacities of these mountain communities.
