This chapter describes earthquake risk reduction efforts in Nepal from NSET’s perspective and is co-authored by a team of researchers who have been with NSET since its inception. NSET was established in 1994 with the objective to reduce earthquake risk in Nepal. The usefulness and innovativeness of NSET’s long-term efforts were tested by the Gorkha earthquake, highlighting positive impacts of the risk management efforts in Nepal in the past 22 years. This chapter provides a brief history of NSET’s earthquake risk management efforts in Nepal and sheds light on some of the innovative postulations and methodologies used.
