Mass casualty disasters in modern times tend to be followed by a second disaster: the converging horde of relief organizations with zero organizational command. Canada's DART is largely PR fluff. The enormity of the carnage in Nepal vastly exceeds the best DART effort and intention. The Nepal regime, while Nepalese are generally extremely friendly and hospitable, is anachronistic and useless. Hundreds of seismologists went to painstaking lengths to warn Nepal of impending large-scale earthquake, only to discover no representative has the vaguest idea about anything. Talking to a brick wall. All the best for DART, but natural disasters require national military precision command and oversight. Nepal has to rise to the task, which has next to no capability.
