Earthquake Safe Communities in Nepal

NSET marked 27 years of its Journey

National Society for Earthquake Technology–Nepal (NSET) has marked 27 years of its journey with various sharing and learning programs. This year's programs, however, were organized on digital platforms due to ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

To mark the Day, NSET hosted 'National Webinar on Multi-Hazard Risk Reduction and Preparedness Coupled with Covid-19' on June 18, 2020. Also, an International Webinar on “Addressing Multi hazard Risk in context of Covid-19: A Global Perspective” was hosted on June 22, 2020.

Established in 1993 with its mission to enhance seismic safety of Nepali communities and the beyond, NSET observes the day on June 18 every year as 'A Day to Reaffirm the Commitments to Earthquake Safety".

In an internal NSET Day event organized on June 19, 2020, NSET Executive Director Mr. Surya Narayan Shrestha welcomed all the staff appreciating for their support and contribution to NSET mission. "NSET has come thus far overcoming all adverse situations. Nonetheless, we have accomplished many activities during the period. The major challenge for the future is the continuation and institutionalization of the past efforts and achievements," Mr.Shrestha remarked.
