The NSSP will help more than 200 schools and communities in Nepal to be more resilient to disasters. This will be achieved through rebuilding, retrofitting and strengthening school buildings themselves; through providing training and education to pupils, staff and community members on disaster preparedness, disaster risk reduction and disaster management; and through providing technical assistance and learning at a national level to support the countrywide development and implementation of safer schools and disaster risk reduction.
