Rapid Visual Screening and Detailed Multi-hazard Risk Assessment


  • After Gorkha Earthquake 2015, WB supported to carry out Structural Integrity and Damage Assessment (SIDA) of all educational institutions in 14 most - affected districts.  

  • The SIDA of more than 18,000 structures; 50% of the infrastructure assessed was found to be structurally vulnerable, whereas 30% had completely collapsed.

  • SIDA's major findings prompted the need to understand risks and vulnerabilities of schools and other critical infrastructures and take immediate action to mitigate the risks in terms of Multi Hazards.


Develop and provide technical and management tools to undertake a nationwide building-by-building multi-hazard risk assessment of educational, health, and public facilities.
