Our works

Here are some of works

DRR Hackathon

Hackathon is a type of idea generating and experience sharing workshop. During HACKATHON, the professionals from different fields use their own spectrum and share their experiences and problems. The experience and problems were analyzed by the participants and the solid solutions were suggested in six different groups formed among the participants.

Landslide Study on Sino-Nepal Road Corridors

Belt and Road initiatives aims to promote peaceful economic development however these initiatives may clash with the environmental condition because of the expansion and upgrading of transportation infrastructure in environmentally sensitive areas. Most of the economic road connectivity passes through very high mountains and unstable slopes in the Belt and Road countries. Therefore, a better understanding of mountain slopes with the distribution of natural hazards area always important for sustainable infrastructure development and avoid placing infrastructure in unstable and vulnerable slopes. In this context, China will be connected to Nepal with three main trans-Himalayan roads namely: Gyirong-Rasuwagadhi-Kathmandu, Jhyangmu-Tatopani-Kathmandu, and Korala-Jomsoom-Pokhara. These proposed road connectivities will pass through the high Tibetan Plateau with rugged and fragile Himalayan mountain slopes where people are suffering different kinds of natural hazards and losing many lives and properties. A detailed field study was carried out in the Korala-Jomsoom-Pokhara road corridors which descends from Kora la (4660m) pass between China and Nepal along the Kaligandaki River and connect Pokhara (1400 m) in western Nepal. The road passes the steep and fragile mountain slopes where Himalaya is acting topographic barrier and thus resulting two different kinds of landscapes with different kinds of natural hazards.

Local Disaster and Climate Resilience Plan

Collection and review of available information on different hazards and disaster risk including disaster preparedness and response for the preparation of risk profiles. Collection of Local disaster and climate-resilient information and conducting VCA with the use of spatial and attribute references. Workshops, Key Informant Interviews, and focus group discussions during the process of developing the LDCRP. Prepare comprehensive GIS maps and develop municipal geodatabases. Prepare and deliver high-quality LDCRP documents and submit the summary report, factsheets, and PowerPoint presentation.
