Risk-Sensitive Land Use Plan: Kathmandu Metropolitan City

‘Land use planning has been identified as one of the most effective ways to take the HFA forward. For highly vulnerable cities like Kathmandu, a land use plan offers an opportunity to incorporate risk reduction into development and spatial plans by engaging the government at various levels, private sector, civil society, international development organizations, and other key stakeholders (e.g. academe, media, private sector, etc.). The land use planning process helps the city address its need to reduce disaster risks as part of its pursuit for sustainable development.’
