The project aims to build urban resilience by incorporating innovative practices in its approach of work. A GIS based Disaster Information Management System (DIMS) for Kathmandu and Lalitpur Metropolitan city was developed with Naxa as a technical partner for “Surakshit Sahar ” project.
The DIMS is a couple of two digital systems; a mobile app and a web portal. The mobile app will be a public focused tool that allows public engagement before, during, and after any forms of disasters and also serve as a medium of communication between public and the government while the web based system will aggregate data and visualize them for better insights on a higher level. The DIMS stores and visualize data-sets like municipal resources and exposure datasets from from the existing ward level profile and geo-database and also risks, hazards, vulnerabilities data assembled from field-based Vulnerability and Capacity Assessments (VCA).
