Relief work following a major disaster in Nepal has been guided by the Natural Calamity Relief Act, 1982. This English-translated version of the National Strategy on Disaster Risk Management provides a strategic direction in covering all phases of the disaster management cycle. The National Disaster Response Framework has been prepared for the effective coordination and implementation of disaster preparedness and response activities by developing a National Disaster Response Plan that clarifies the roles and responsibilities of Government and Non-Government agencies involved in disaster risk management in Nepal. The framework focuses on preparedness and emergency response at various levels.
