Twenty years ago, in the period between filing and defending my Master’s thesis, I took off for Nepal to visit my Nepali graduate school roommate who was there working on a research project in the highland rural communities between Kathmandu and Pokhara. I had just one small backpack when I arrived in Kathmandu and took a rickshaw to meet her at a humble guesthouse in the Thamel district.

Natural disasters, like yesterday’s earthquake in Nepal, are a leading cause of hunger and malnutrition. Without protection from the risks associated with disasters, the most vulnerable people cannot build resilience that will be key in the face of a typhoon, flooding, famine or other natural disaster. Disaster risk reduction is therefore a prerequisite for sustainable development and for eliminating hunger, and is a major priority for WFP.
