Protecting heritage against disasters in Nepal


This video explores how the government of Nepal and the private sector are working together to rebuild heritage sites that were damaged or destroyed during the country's 2015 earthquake. It is estimated that some 500,000 buildings were destroyed outright and another 250,000 damaged in the disaster. Protecting cultural heritage, which is a vital source of tourist revenue, and ensuring that buildings are built to withstand hazards are important themes in the Sendai Framework
