Enhancing and Developing Seismic Risk Assesment for Sagaing City of Myanmar
Sagaing city is lying on the Sagaing Fault, however no studies have been carried out to assess their earthquake related risk. In addition, Sagaing has undergone recent urban developments with the construction of higher storey buildings. In this regard, earthquake related risk assessment in Sagaing is carried out to estimate the damages. The findings from this report can lead to develop comprehensive risk reduction programs addressing the specific vulnerabilities as well as guiding the future development in the cities along with UN-Habitat’s Myanmar Comprehensive Disaster Risk Reduction Programme and also with broader DRR-WG activities and those of initiatives by the local and national Government.
