Buthan: large scale seismic analyzes and pilot projects


Seismic Vulnerability at urban scale and pilot projects.

World Bank Project for Improving Resilience to Seismic Risk in Bhutan

Bhutan has been affected by several earthquakes over the last century that have confirmed the high seismic activity of the country. Both the M6.1 earthquake of 21th September 2009 in Eastern Bhutan and the M6.8 earthquake of 18th September 2011 in Sikkim, which principally affected Western Bhutan, have claimed numerous lives and caused severe damages to buildings.

The Project "Bhutan: Improving Resilience to Seismic Risk" has just the objective to improve the understanding of earthquake risk in Bhutan, as well as opportunities and challenges associated with its mitigation.
