Access to Services and Environment Improvement

Introduction 

Strong structures are necessary for any community’s security against future shocks. The project has addressed the need for disaster-resilient infrastructure: shelters, toilets, and roads. Beyond this first layer of safety, access to services such as drinking water, irrigation, and health are essential for post-disaster recovery and long-term development. Further, the introduction of information technology for practical uses can catalyse growth, whereas the application of environment-friendly home systems and practices allow for continued self-sustenance. Therefore, to make Dhungentar a resilient mountain village, this pilot demonstration project emphasised on improving access to fundamental services and creating a self-reliant village.
