Nepal is situated in the region vulnerable to natural disaster. Every year several natural disasters like earthquake, floods, and erosion happen. Main reasons of natural disasters in Nepal are due to active tectonic activities, young and fragile geology, a variable climatic condition depending on altitude, and unplanned settlement. The poor economic condition of the people has increased dependency on natural resources which also helps to trigger natural disasters in Nepal.
Ecoreach foundation is committed to empowering local communities in order to increase their capacity in disaster preparedness and management by training and awareness and help them to identify the most effective means to mitigate effects of natural disaster.
