People in Need (PIN) is a non-governmental, non-profit, international organization founded in the Czech Republic in 1992. PIN arrived in Nepal as part of a humanitarian response to the April 25, 2015 earthquake. Since its inception in Nepal, PIN has had a strong role advocating and addressing the needs of vulnerable populations affected by disaster including person categories who live in geographically remote areas of the country, historically marginalized ethnic groups, and those marginalized because of their age and/or gender identity. PIN has also supported Nepal’s post-earthquake reconstruction efforts ensuring that the most vulnerable people are not left behind with resilience (focused on shelter and resettlement) and inclusive education programming. PIN-Nepal is strongly committed for safeguarding of children and vulnerable adults, including persons with disabilities, in line with its safeguarding framework and child protection policy.

NHSRP Background

The National Housing and Settlements Resilience Coordination Platform (NHSRP) is the renamed platform of the extended fourth phase (August 2021- July 2025) of previous Housing Recovery and Reconstruction Platform (NHSRP), which was launched in November 2015 to take over supporting coordination of the post-earthquake housing reconstruction from the Nepal Shelter Cluster, as it returned to the pre-earthquake format as a standard cluster. NHSRP was handed over to NDRRMA by NRA following the end of NRA tenure in December 2021. NHSRP now supports local organizations, community-based organizations (CBOs) and the private sector to strengthen disaster risk reduction structures provisioned under Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act, 2017 namely Provincial Disaster Management Committee (PDMC), District Disaster Management Committee (DDMC), Local Disaster Management Committee (LDMC) while supporting the formulation of DRR plans and implementation of national disaster risk reduction and management structures. NHSRP promotes localization of disaster risk reduction and post disaster housing reconstruction and settlement recovery in line with NDRRMA’s National Strategic Plan of Action (NSPoA), National Disaster Resilient Framework (NDRF), and other priorities.
