Mission Statement

"To assist all communities in Nepal to become earthquake-safer by developing and implementing organized approaches to managing and minimizing earthquake risks."

Perfect alignment of commitments to NSET Vision has been expressed accurately in the Mission statement. Our institutional MISSION is "To assist all communities in Nepal to become earthquake-safer by developing and implementing organized approaches to managing and minimizing earthquake risks."

To executing this mission, NSET has developed and implemented several innovative initiatives and processes. NSET plans and programs constitute a broad spectrum ranging from technological innovations & academic as well as policy level interventions to upgrading disaster awareness among school-children, house-wives, & commoner people and promoting capacity building of construction activists at grass-root level. NSET General Secretary and Executive Director Mr. Amod Mani Dixit highlights the emergence of NSET so as to address two key areas. First, new approaches were needed for empowering communities with scientific knowledge on disaster risks and risk reduction measures and to help them in implementing the measures by enhancing communities' capacities in disaster preparedness. And secondly, it was also necessary to advocate for disaster risk reduction and assist central and local governments to develop and implement appropriate strategies, policies and programs.
