Coordinated disaster preparedness and response activities in Nepal began in 2008 following the Koshi floods when the Government of Nepal (GoN) and the international humanitarian community, through the IASC and led by the Humanitarian Coordinator and OCHA rolled out the cluster approach for the first time in Nepal. Followed by INSARAG and MPAT simulation exercises, the GoN subsequently endorsed the National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management (NSDRM) in 2009. In 2009, the NRRC Flagship programmes were developed, providing the only joint strategic plan for long term risk reduction in Nepal, formulated and jointly agreed by the GoN, the IASC and the donor community. A series of discussions and planning meetings were held by a joint task force led by the GoN, with OCHA developing and formulating the document, culminating in the formal "Guidance Note - Disaster Preparedness and Response Planning 2011".
