The Big One
Kathmandu remains one of the most vulnerable cities in the world due to an impending big earthquake. Seismological records show that big earthquakes have occurred every 75 years in Kathmandu. But it is not just the magnitude of the earthquake but the country's poor preparedness that is increasingly putting the lives of the capital's two million at risk. In this edition of Development Dilemma, we will focus on the earthquake risks in Kathmandu and what action should the country take to prepare for the big one which has been long overdue. Naresh Newar moderates this session with experts working on earthquake disaster reduction. Robert Piper is the head of the United Nations in Nepal; Amod Dixit is the executive director of Nepal Society for Earthquake Technology or NSET; Pitambar Aryal, is the director for Disaster Management Department at the Nepal Red Cross Society.
