This 2014 wall calendar produced by USAID Nepal with the theme ‘Building a Resilient Nepal’ showcases some of the strong, resilient people and communities who have eagerly embraced the opportunity to provide a better future for themselves and their families.
Nepal remains vulnerable to shocks and stresses which occur locally and internationally, that could undermine its progress and reverse development gains. Dramatic events such as earthquakes can have a disastrous, immediate impact. Stresses such as drought, global economic volatility, or chronic poverty can take more gradual but nonetheless insidious forms. USAID is working to support and build resilience across all sectors—from agriculture and economic growth, to health and education, to democracy and governance, to natural resource management. Our programs strengthen the communities where we work so that they are better prepared and able to take anticipatory action to avoid major losses, and in the event that crisis occurs, they are able to respond more effectively.
