Crisis and Disaster Risk Management : A Case of Nepal Earthquake




The April 25, 2015 Nepal earthquake is reminder of the vulnerability of the population living in the vicinity of the Himalayan seismic belt of the earthquake hazard. Due to its active tectonic movement the entire Himalayan belt is seismically active posing high risk of earthquake to millions of people living in this region. The purpose of this paper is to investigate crisis and disaster risk management issues during natural disaster such as earthquake. A case of Nepal earthquake was taken to conduct this study. The results were focused on earthquake preparedness and preventive measures as well as rescue and relief mechanisms. The geo- technique framework is responsible for the occurrence of huge earthquake in different regions. A meaningful program such as research, appropriate building codes, and public awareness are crucial. Several initiatives are now being taken at research and management levels in Nepal.
