Vulnerability and Risk: Rebuilding after disaster I Langasu, Uttarakhand, India I 2008
In June 2008 the ‘Vulnerability and Risk Workshop’ series continued in the state of Uttarakhand in the Indian Himalayas. The workshop was in partnership with the Indian NGO: SEEDs India and the local organisation, GPJKP. As 60% of India’s land area could face moderate to severe earthquakes, the project scenario for the workshop was based in an area where the built environment is extremely fragile and the ability to prepare and effectively respond to earthquakes is currently inadequate. The group was challenged with a scenario to provide interim shelter to families as soon as possible following an earthquake.
