Nepal MAANP001 Annual Report 2012

This report covers the period 1 January to 31 December 2012

Overview

In 2012, Nepal Red Cross Society (NRCS) received a number of new contributions through the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) for programmes in nearly all of the core areas of support. Most of the funding was received quite late in the year, which resulted in some delays in the commencement of programmes. The unstable political situation caused some programme delays as the country faced nation-wide and localized strikes and protests, leading to the postponement or cancellation of several regional workshops and meetings during May/June. Nevertheless, there have been significant achievements in a number of areas reaching over 23,000 people directly and around 280,000 people indirectly. Additionally, there was a good progress in the areas of strategic partnerships, Movement coordination and international representation by IFRC which helped to promote and reinforce the credibility of the Red Cross Movement as a whole in the Nepal context.
