Nepal: Disaster risk management mechanism in the offing

Source(s):  Himalayan Times, the - International Media Network Nepal Pvt. Ltd.

The Ministry of Home Affairs has initiated the establishment of a Disaster Information Management System that will serve as a repository of data, information, policies, and key decisions on disaster risk reduction and management in the country.

According to ‘National Position Paper on Disaster Risk Reduction and Management’ recently presented by the MoHA in Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction-2019, held in Geneva, the DIMS will serve as the common sharing platform for the purpose of disaster risk reduction and management. “It serves as a platform for fostering data partnership on disaster management and a common system for disaster management at multiple tiers of the government and stakeholders. A strong linkage will be established among the institutions/ agencies involved in forecasting, managing and assessing risks and responses,” it read.


All local levels will have access to DIMS to update and provide disaster data relevant information from the field, which can be directly fed into the system.


Development partners and humanitarian organisations are also working on resilience building through capacity building programme to mainstream disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation into development planning.
