Nepal is at high risk of natural hazards such as floods, landslides, earthquakes, fires, cyclonic winds, hailstorms, and drought which can lead to hunger and epidemic outbreaks in their aftermath. Among the major natural hazards, floods and landslides are the most recurrent in Nepal. More people are killed by disasters in Nepal compared to any other country in South Asia; on average two lives are lost to natural disasters every day. As the Koshi River flood disaster has vividly demonstrated, outdated and under-serviced infrastructure, such as dams, barrages and embankments, add to the disaster risk in the country. A devastating earthquake does not occur frequently, and hence its impact is not reflected in statistics covering the past 30-40 years. However, should it occur, the damage would be significant. The entire country falls in a high earthquake intensity belt.
