The U.S. Mission in Nepal, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), today announced three new programs with up to $70 million in funds that will help communities more quickly recover from natural disasters and other stressors.  The announcement came at a Resilience Summit organized in Kathmandu.  The Summit brought together government officials and development experts to look for new models to solve complex and interrelated challenges such as extreme poverty, food security, and climate shocks.  Working under the leadership of the Government of Nepal, the U.S. Government aims to save and improve more lives, build inclusive economic growth, and decrease the need for humanitarian assistance.

Speaking at the Summit, U.S. Ambassador Peter Bodde, shared, “Resilience is essential if we are to win the fight against poverty. We know we cannot prevent floods and landslides, but we can work much harder and more strategically to ensure these shocks don’t devastate families or set back hard-won development gains.”
