Organization Summary

The Nepalese people, living in a country of high seismic hazard, have faced the consequences of many earthquakes including those of Great Earthquakes. Therefore, in order to reduce the impacts of future earthquakes; to raise awareness amongst the people on the possibilities of earthquake disaster reduction; to contribute to the development of science and technology related to earthquake disaster mitigation and implementation of earthquake resistant measures in construction; and to fulfill the necessity of a national, professional, non-governmental scientific organization, Nepalese professionals belonging to various technical as well as social aspects of earthquake disaster management decided to constitute the National Society for Earthquake Technology-Nepal. In order to gain a legal status to this national level organization, the founders of this Society unanimously adopted its Constitution.

NSET was founded by a meeting of professionals on June 18, 1993 with the vision "Earthquake Safe Communities in Nepal by 2020". The meeting, convened by Amod Mani Dixit and Mahesh Nakarmi, was attended by around 15 professionals from the Ministry of Housing and Physical Planning and its departments, seismologists, university professors, civil engineers and journalists.
