Emergency Action Plan and Fire Prevention Plan


This study discusses about the improvement of physical infrastructure, poverty alleviation, change in the people's perception, literacy campaign, public awareness raising programs and capacity building necessary for disaster management.

Nepal faces formidable challenges in dealing with natural disasters and environmental degradation, given its physiographical characteristics and resource limitations. The complex situation is exacerbated by factors such as underdeveloped infrastructure, poverty, fatalistic attitudes, low literacy rates, and insufficient political commitment. To address these issues effectively, concrete and practical policies focusing on infrastructure development, poverty alleviation, changing perceptions, literacy campaigns, public awareness, and capacity building are crucial. A holistic Integrated Environmental Management (IEM) approach is proposed to mitigate environmental degradation and enhance national productivity. This approach emphasizes ecosystem-based participatory resource management and employs a combination of command and control measures and market-based incentives to address environmental pollution, ultimately striving towards a sustainable society.
