PDF File Size: 236 KB | Download   
Kathmandu is considered by experts to be the world’s most at-risk city to a major earthquake. Rapid urbanization, high-density and poorly planned construction, and limited adherence to building codes, have substantially increased the vulnerability of the Kathmandu Valley. The predicted loss of life, displacement and damage to infrastructure is likely to require a humanitarian response on the scale of the one seen in Haiti in 2010.
