The Nepal Disaster Report 2013 Focus on Participation and Inclusion is a resource for understanding and analyzing national disaster risk today and in the future. Large and small disasters, ranging from the seti flood of kaski district in May 2012 to the cold waves in the terai, continued to demonstrate the intimate relationship between disasters and poverty. Drawing on new and enhanced data, this report attempts to explore trends in disaster risk for each region and with different socio-economic development. The NDR 2013 is a compilation of facts of disaster occurences and efforts made in Nepal in reducing the impacts of disasters and in getting prepared for future events. The documneet tries to make a case on why and how Nepal should address the issues of disaster management in order to preserve and enhance the well known resilience of the Nepalese people to adversaries and vagaries of nature, safeguard people's life and property and ensure incorporation of disaster risk reduction measures into our development efforts.
