Case: Kathmandu Earthquake

The earthquake disaster preparedness programmes launched by the government and NGOs are primarily focused on building earthquake resistance infrastructures, teaching survival techniques during earthquakes, etc. (see also [7694-sanitation in emergencies overview], [7696-immediate and short term emergency sanitation] and [7697-medium term emergency sanitation and upgrading]). From a water and sanitation point of view, very little focus is given to earthquake preparedness.
