Population growth and increasing urbanization in earthquake-prone areas suggest that earthquake impacts on human populations will increase in the coming decades. Recent large earthquakes affecting large populations in Japan, Haiti, Chile and New Zealand are evidence of this trend and also illustrate significant damage and mortality levels that can result from such events. At TEDS we are dedicated in our effort to help communities become more resilient to earthquakes, thereby minimising disruptions and increasing speeds of recovery.
TEDS is working in collaboration with the charity 'Small Acts of Kindness', to help a number of communities in Kathmandu recover from the 2015 earthquake.
