In the case of Nepal, exposure to Geohazards has increased fiercely due to rapid urbanization and a growing population. Nepal’s exposure to geohazards can have adverse impacts on residential and commercial areas, public facilities, construction sites, mines, coast and river embankments, tourist areas, hydropower, roads, irrigation, and railways. For this purpose, new technology and technology transfer is the most crucial part of the present scenario in Nepal.

As such, GSI has a suite of solutions to protect from geohazards in the plains of Terai to the Climbing trail of Mt Everest. Cost-effective and technically correct solutions and high-quality materials are key to our problem-solving approach in Nepal Himalaya.
