This research seeks to provide evidence to validate, and, where needed, offer refinements and changes, to support a renewed process of consensus-building for public education for earthquake (and all-hazards) safety.  The objective of the project is to identify the causes of injuries and deaths in the Gorkha Earthquake, 2015 (and subsequently) in order to provide a scientific basis for education and training of the Nepali public in basic disaster preparedness and mitigation. The study is funded by Save the Children.
