Building a Safer Nepal
PDF File Size: 390 KB | Download   
Earthquakes are a great threat to Nepal as most of the country lies in a high-risk seismic zone. Despite this reality, most buildings and infrastructure continue to be built without reference to earthquake-resistant technology, putting millions of lives at risk. Due to a lack of enforcement in best construction practice, Nepal is plagued with haphazard construction that threatens lives and the gains made in development. In order to reduce vulnerability, the UNDP five-year Comprehensive Disaster Risk Management Programme aims to enhance the implementation of a National Building Code (NBC) and to promote Risk Sensitive Land Use Planning (RSLUP) in Nepal, particularly in rapidly urbanizing urban centers like Kathmandu.
