Highlights

Given the relatively high level of risk, UNICEF India Country Office identified Disaster Risk Reduction as one of the key cross cutting programme element in its country programme 2018- 2022. Robust risk analysis of the potential impacts of shocks and stresses is an essential decision-making tool for programmers seeking to build resilience.

This risk analysis document for Bihar has been developed to act as a decision-making tool for planning and pitching of government flagship programmes as well as UNICEF India’s programming in the state together with the State Government of Bihar. By highlighting the impact of shocks and stresses on ongoing efforts towards development outcomes in Bihar as well as the underlying vulnerabilities contributing to these impacts, the document enables an analysis of what can be done differently.
