KATHMANDU:- Nepal Government has adopted the ‘impact-based early warning information system’ by managing the monsoon-related information system this time around.
The early warning information system was put in place based on assessment of the geo-located potential effects by further managing the past early warning information system, said the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Authority.
Authority’s Chief Executive Officer Anil Pokharel told RSS, “This time around we have attempted to make the information system further well-managed and impact-based. The system has the information which areas are potentially higher riskier from flooding, where the rain will bring more effects and how precautions could be well-devised”.
The Department of Hydrology and Meteorology, Department of Mines and Geology, National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Authority and National Emergency Work Operation Centre Kathmandu would play coordinating role in course of the system management, he said. Training has been already imparted to necessary technical human resource.
The Department of Weather Forecasting has been routinely providing its information. Preparation is underway to bring out ‘disaster bulletin’ on daily basis by coordinating with other sectors.
Academy in-charge Pokharel said the present information system does not only provide surface information about flight of monsoon wind from Bay of Bengal but also the disaggregated information as to where the wind will affect, where the loses are likely and how can it be responded well.
Besides, it does not only impart information about the current of the river but also the information where does it affect more.
