International Disaster Response Laws (IDRL) in Nepal: a study for strengthening legal preparedness for international disaster response

Source(s):  International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC)
Nepal Red Cross Society (NRCS)

This report, prepared by the Nepal Red Cross Society, reviews Nepal’s legal policy and framework for international disaster response with a focus on large-scale emergencies that exceed national coping capacities.

The IFRC’s International Disaster Response Laws, Rules and Principles (IDRL) Programme seeks to reduce human vulnerability by promoting legal preparedness for disasters. It works in three areas: (1) collaborating with National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and other partners to offer technical assistance to governments on disaster law issues; (2) building the capacity of National Societies and other stakeholders on disaster law; and (3) dissemination, advocacy and research.
