Manifestation of Flooding and Land-Use Connections: A Case Study of Kathmandu Metropolitan City, Nepal
Urban disasters are not sudden phenomena. They incubate over time with land-use changes and spatial growths. With hazard shocks (e.g., floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.), incubating human and asset vulnerabilities are manifested in the form of losses.
In this presentation, Jiwnath Ghimire, assistant professor of community and regional planning, presents exacerbating flood disasters in Kathmandu Metropolitan City of Nepal, where land-use changes meet with changing monsoon patterns over time, increasing loss of lives, livelihoods and properties
