Main Results:

The study reported in this paper investigates structural vulnerability, seismic risk, and the resulting possible economic losses owing to future earthquakes in Nepal. The OpenQuake-engine, the open-source platform for seismic hazard and risk assessment from the Global Earthquake Model initiative, was used to calculate the seismic hazard and risk in Nepal. Finally, the distribution of building damage and corresponding economic losses due to the recurrence of the historical 1934 earthquake was presented in this study.
