Manandhar, Mohan Das; Varughese, George; Howitt, Arnold M.; Kelly, Erica | April 2017
This paper is part of a broader, ongoing effort to better understand how to improve Nepal’s disaster preparedness and response capabilities. To explore this topic, existing disaster management plans, reports, and post-earthquake evaluations from the national government, the military, NGOs, and press sources, both domestic and international, were reviewed. To deepen and build upon this research, over 30 personal interviews were conducted in Nepal and via phone with a wide variety of stakeholders from the disaster management community. These included both current and former senior officers of the Nepal Army, representatives of the U.S. military (Office of Defense Cooperation), Nepali government ministries, international and local NGOs, development agencies, and the private sector. In the following pages, we summarize key findings and suggested action on civil-military coordination.
