Keywords:DDMA, Earthquake, NDMA, NDMP, Seismic, Seismicity, SDMA
The Kashmir Valley is a scenic region located in north-western India, known for its natural beauty and cultural significance. Despite its attractive features, the valley is situated in an active seismic zone and is vulnerable to earthquakes, which have caused widespread damage and loss of life in the past. In this paper, we present a hazard assessment of the Kashmir Valley to understand the seismic risk posed to the region. The study provides a comprehensive analysis of the geophysical setting of the valley, historical earthquake activity, and the current seismic hazard assessment. The paper also highlights the measures being taken to reduce the impact of earthquakes in the valley, with a focus on the role of the government, local communities, and NGOs in disaster risk reduction.
