About DPNet-Nepal

The network aims to assist individuals and organisations to prepare for, and respond to and manage disaster should it strike.

DPNet-Nepal are concerned with natural disasters such as earthquake, floods, droughts and landslide. It will also cover disasters such as epidemic, flood and fire that occur often in towns and villages.
