National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management in Nepal
PDF File Size: 859 KB | Download   
The National Strategy for Disaster Risk Management in Nepal (NSDRMN) endeavors to facilitate the required change in order to achieve the goal of disaster resilient Nepal by providing guidance for improving the policy and legal environment, and by prioritizing the strategic interventions. The Strategy as well as the elaborate process of its development addresses Nepal’s long-felt need to come up with a long term policy document and build on the enormous amount of disaster reduction planning and implementation works that have
been carried out in the country in the past, especially after the commencement of the International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (1990-1999). It has put forth suggestions regarding institutional reorganization and development, and strategic improvement in the existing policy and legal environment for creating an enabling atmosphere for encouraging disaster risk reduction (DRR) and preparedness planning at all levels as well as for mainstreaming DRR strategies into the national development and poverty alleviation agenda.
Thus, it is a road map that provides long term guidance in the area of disaster risk management planning and implementation in Nepal. Rather than being an Action Plan, it is but a guide for subsequent action planning for disaster risk management (DRM) in any of the development sectors by government or non-government institutions. Based on a sound analysis of the existing gaps, the NSDRMN aims to trigger a process of change in both aspects of DRM, namely, disaster reduction and emergency response planning and capacity
enhancement.
