In the past decades since the M6.6 Udaypur earthquake of 1988, Nepal has done a great stride in Earthquake Risk Management: there have been tremendous progress in policy formulation, for example development and implementation of the National Building Code, Academic researches and teaching in aspects of earthquake engineering, seismological researches including trendching of active faults and better understanding of the past earthquake events, and earthquakes risk management including earthquake awareness and education, in implementation of earthquake risk reduction initiatives such as the assistance to Municipalities in Building Code implementation, instrumentation and monitoring, and so on. Innovative methodologies and programs have been developed and implemented collectively. There is a visible process of the development of national school of thought.

The approaches and successes of the past had been tested by the Gorkha Earthquake sequence of 2015, and Nepal has learned rich but expensive lessons. It is with this desire to learn collectively from the past, especially the efficiency of our approaches, and then to chart out a future strategy for earthquake risk management in the country, and also to celebrate the successes of the Gorkha Earthquake reconstruction and to critically evaluate the outcome of the approaches adopted, we are organizing this international conference RISK2RESILIENCE. This idea is to design a future strategy based upon the lessons learned so far in aspects of earthquake risk management in Nepal.


Critically look back at what we all collectively did for Earthquake Risk Reduction & Preparedness in Nepal in the past decades in the Light of 2015 Gorkha Earthquake sequence..
