KATHMANDU: Ncell has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology (DHM) to further deepen collaboration between the two institutions for the implementation of early warning system (EWS) — a lifesaver initiative that improves disaster preparedness.
Vishal Upadhyay, chief information officer of Ncell and Rishi Ram Sharma, director general of DHM, signed the MoU on behalf of their respective institutions, as per a press statement.
The new MoU broadens collaboration between Ncell and DHM, which began in 2016, to implement EWS for hydro-meteorology related disasters such as floods and landslides.
Since the understanding, Ncell has been broadcasting early warning alerts through mass SMS to people living in downstream river basin of major rivers causing floods and inflicting huge loss to life and property.
