Abstract

Nepal faces frequent threats of natural disasters and the media has a significant role to play in their management.

The aim of this study was to understand the prevailing status of media management of natural disasters and develop a framework to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of Nepalese media. These studies used a qualitative design to analyse the media's contents. In addition, semi-structured interviews were conducted with key stakeholders to identify policy and practical implications.

This research demonstrated the media's attention mostly focusses on human aspects and the response phase and less so on prevention and preparedness. The framework developed may encourage a more comprehensive approach by the media.
