Nepal is one of the countries in the world most vulnerable to natural disasters, including earthquakes. Increasing climate change impacts on fragile geo-physical settings, recurrent and new patterns of natural hazards like floods and landslides and degradation of the eco-systems by human activities have in the recent years taken an increasing toll on human lives, losses of properties and economic gains and investments. Recent flooding with associated loss of significant number of lives and damage to livelihood assets in the Koshi area in the east and Kanchanpur, Kailali in west Nepal
in 2008 alone illustrate the severity of the problem. While there are well established immediate disaster response mechanisms at national and local levels, capacity to prepare for, mitigate risks and adapt needs to be built up. The newly approved national Strategy Disaster Risk Management in Nepal will be a key driver of this effort.
