PDF File Size: 3.74 MB | Download   
Nepal is one of the most disaster-prone countries in the world. It is exposed to multiple natural hazards, most prominently earthquake, landslides and floods among many others. In addition, epidemics, industrial accidents, explosions, road accidents, and poison related incidents also are common in Nepal. Every year the country suffers greatly due to losses in both human lives as well as properties. As the youngest republic country in the world, the newly established Nepalese government is determined to take actions to reduce losses in the future and develop capability to respond in the long term. However before moving ahead, formulating policies or implementing actions to reduce future risks, policy makers need to have a clear understanding of what capability exists in terms of emergency management in Nepal. Thus a special capacity assessment mission was dispatched by the United Nation Development Programme and Nepalese government in August, 2012. The goal of the mission is to assess Nepal's capacity to respond to disasters and provide constructive suggestions to help the nation build a sustainable emergency management system in the long term. As in any capacity improvement initiative, it is important for the government of Nepal to prioritize goals, objectives, and/or actions that are feasible, based on the understanding of existing capacity of government agencies, nonprofit organizations and international organizations tasked with operations and implementation. It also helps to determine which mitigation actions are practical and likely to be implemented given a government‟s planning and regulatory framework, level of administrative and technical support, amount of fiscal resources, and current political climate. This report presents findings of a capacity assessment project conducted in Nepal in August, 2012. The project was sponsored by the United Nation Development Programme and Nepalese government. The report provides a step-by-step solution to help Nepal systematically develop its resilient disaster management system.
