Use of Geo-Science in Disaster Preparedness.

FDM and ODI collectively conducted a study on use of geo- Science in disaster preparedness which was funded by DFID. The study primarily focused on tracking the production, communication, and interpretation of the landslide inventory maps produced by Durham/British Geological Survey immediately after the April and May earthquakes. British Geological Survey (BGS) provided information on the evolving landslide risk in the earthquake-affected mountain and hill districts through a landslide mapping study. In addition, the Nepal Risk Reduction Consortium (NRRC) tasked with coordinating disaster risk reduction activities – convened (informally) representatives from key organizations engaged in scientific research and knowledge brokering within Nepal.
