Abstract: Nepal Flood Resilience Project (NFRP), as part of the Zurich Flood Resilience Alliance (ZFRA), has included knowledge node and weather advisory services through Practical Answers as one of the major components of resilience building of flood affected communities. Knowledge node refers to an informal platform that can be used to inform, engage and build the capacity of flood vulnerable communities with various livelihood related and flood resilience skills. In this regard, the project has been working with communities through social mobilizers who are assigned to particular communities for regularly communicating weather advisory and knowledge node services to local communities. The knowledge services, both knowledge node and weather advisory, have been addressing the needs of the most vulnerable and flood affected communities. The knowledge services are largely used by women farmers of the community, who find it easier to communicate with technical experts through their cooperatives and women groups.
