Building Information Platform Against Disaster (BIPAD) has the potential to create systemic shift on disaster governance in Nepal conforming to the global principles of Sendai Framework of Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR). National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Authority (NDRRMA) is leading this momentum for the adoption of BIPAD at local and provincial level, however, there are several challenges in fully institutionalizing BIPAD. One eminent challenge for such digital technology interventions is - failing to acquire the commitments of its potential users, as they become data centric, technologically cumbersome and unable to meet the requirements of the users. Also, institutionalization of BIPAD demands that the system adapt fully to the decentralized DRRM governance. On this backdrop, it looks prudent for BIPAD to retain its focus on users, user personas and perspectives at all three layers of government while preparing to roll out at provincial and local levels.
