The large 7.8 Richter scale earthquake on 25 April 2015, which had the epicenter in Gorkha district in Western Nepal, and related aftershocks in the weeks after, underline the high risk of earthquake in Nepal.

The Earthquake Preparedness Information Pack is intended to highlight the existing earthquake risks in Nepal and advise preparedness for such disastrous event.
