The paper is prepared to draw attention of local and international community including the government and donors to gear up for policy reform and create an environment for investing in proactive earthquake safety initiatives before the next earthquake strikes. The paper focuses on the outcome of the author’s continuous interaction with local community since 1985 on the need for extended earthquake safety initiatives through stakeholders’ easy access to technical assistance and financial resources. The most neglected aspect in the earthquake initiatives of Nepal is the lack of state ownership and lack of dedicated responsible institutions resulting in a massive toll of life and property. It is time to use the opportunity created by the April 2015 earthquake.Keywords: policy reform; proactive initiatives; conservation; strengthening.
