Flagship 4 Handbook: Nepal’s 9 Minimum Characteristics Of A Disaster Resilient Community
PDF File Size: 6.87 MB | Download   
Classified as a global ‘hotspot’ (World Bank, 2005), Nepal is vulnerable to multiple natural disasters, suffering an average of 900 natural disasters each year resulting in lost lives and damaged livelihoods (MoHA, 2009). These disasters include landslides, earthquakes, floods, windstorms, hailstorms, fire, glacial lake outburst floods (GLOFs), and avalanches. Adding to the picture is the diverse landscape of the country, with the majority of the country classified as mountainous or hilly (MOHA, 2011). In addition, Nepal is experiencing the fastest rate of urban growth of any South Asian country ( World Bank, 2013 ). Nepal, in short, is confronted with many challenges in making itself more resilient to disasters.
