Nepal is a landlocked country in South Asia that is highly vulnerable to earthquakes. In order to better understand seismic risk and build resilience, the World Bank and GFDRR, in collaboration with the Government of Nepal and the Open Data for Resilience Initiative have provided a data sharing portal that offers maps and map layers relevant to disaster risk management.

Maps on the portal include relevant information on earthquakes, drought and other hazards.
