Nepal is characterized by a rugged topography, very high relief, variable climate conditions and complex geographical structures with active tectonic processes, seismic activities and frequent natural disasters. Also, Nepal is ranked the fourth most vulnerable country in the world in terms of climate change-induced hazards. A survey of 200 countries ranks Nepal in the 11th and the 30th places as the most vulnerable country in terms of earthquakes and floods respectively.

The highly impacted districts of this region are Bardiya, Shurkhet, Dang, Banke, Jajarkot, Kailali, Kanchanpur and other parts of the country. Many people died, more injured and some of them are missing and about 20,000 are displaced.

The flash floods of 2009 in Kailali and Kanchanpur and landslides in Doti and Accham districts damaged infrastructure and properties of worth billions of rupees.

 The epidemic in Jajarkot and Rukum districts in 2009 also killed a number of people. According to a survey, in the time period (1971-2010), more than 50,000 people were reportedly injured and more than 27,000 reportedly died.
