DEPROSC-Nepal is a non-profit making, non-governmental organization (NGO) with expertise in food security, microfinance, natural resource management, community assets, social development and DRR. At present, it has been active in 33 different districts in Terai, hills and mountains for said missions.  Oxfam and DEPROSC-Nepal has entered into a Long Term Standby Partnership to work jointly for humanitarian capacity building for better and effective preparedness since 2013.

During the period of emergency response, the critical and immediate needs of affected communities especially related to food and livelihood were addressed by implementing various EFSVL interventions however; strategic needs are found to be more concentrated and need to be addressed accordingly.  Currently we are implementing EFSVL and SHELTER activities in 1 municipality of Kathmandu and 1 municipality and 3 VDCs of Lalitpur districts in recovery phase which will be completed by end of March 2018.
