About DPNet Nepal

Disaster Preparedness Network Nepal (DPNet Nepal) is a national Network of organizations and individuals working in the field of Disaster Risk Management (DRM) in Nepal. In 1996, DPNet Nepal was established as a non government, service oriented and nonprofit making network to strengthen the mechanism of coordination and sharing information among organizations and professionals involved in disaster risk management in Nepal. DPNet Nepal is a common platform of various agencies that includes Government, NGOs, INGOs, Red Cross Movement, Academia, UN agencies, donors, private sector, media, students, researchers and civil society organizations.

It is envisioned that DPNet Nepal could be a national level platform that serves for coordination, capacity building, networking, awareness and trainings. It also has been advocating the issues of mainstreaming DRR into development.

PNet-Nepal works closely with Government of Nepal through its agencies, which are concerned with disaster preparedness, disaster response, disaster risk reduction. DPNet-Nepal complements the effort of these agencies to inform and prepare organizations and communities to deal effectively with disasters. DPNet-Nepal is concerned with disasters such as earthquake, floods, droughts, landslides. It also covers disaster such as epidemic and fire that occur often in urban and rural communities.

DPNet-Nepal aims to assist and work closely with the Government institutions but as facilitator to disaster risk management activities in Nepal. Thus, DPNet-Nepal allows and encourages promoting effective coordination and communication as well developing knowledge management with its all stakeholders in Nepal.
