International Disaster Response Law (IDRL) in Nepal: A study on strengthening legal preparedness for international disaster response

This report reviews Nepal’s legal and policy framework for disaster response with a focus on large-scale emergencies that exceed national coping capacities. It analyses Nepal’s legal preparedness for disasters by assessing its legal framework against key international standards.

The study aims to:

  1. Identify gaps and areas of good practice in addressing legal issues and implementing the key regional and international instruments relevant to disasters in Nepal.
  2. Recommend measures to minimize legal barriers and encourage effective national and international responses to disasters in Nepal.
