    Every year, around 60,000 people die worldwide in

    natural disasters. The majority of the deaths are caused

    by building collapse in earthquakes, and the great

    majority occurs in the developing world. This is despite

    the fact that engineering solutions exist that can almost

    completely eliminate the risk of such deaths. Why is

    this? The engineering solutions are both expensive and

    technically demanding, so that the benefit-cost ratio

    of such solutions is often unfavorable compared with

    other interventions designed to save lives in developing

    countries. Nonetheless, a range of public disaster risk reduction interventions (including construction activities)

    This paper—a product of the Finance Economics & Urban Department, Sustainable Development Network—is part of a

    larger effort in the department to analyze the economics of natural disasters. This paper is prepared as a background paper

    to the joint World Bank-UN Assessment of the Economics of Disaster Risk Reduction. Funding from the Global Facility

    for Disaster Reduction and Recovery is gratefully acknowledged. Policy Research Working Papers are also posted on the

    are highly cost effective. The fact that such interventions

    often remain unimplemented or ineffectively executed

    points to a role for issues of political economy. Building

    regulations in developing countries appear to have limited

    impact in many cases, perhaps because of limited capacity

    and the impact of corruption. Public construction is

    often of low quality—perhaps for similar reasons. This

    suggests approaches that emphasize simple and limited

    disaster risk regulation covering only the most at-risk

    structures and that (preferably) can be monitored by

    non-experts. It also suggests a range of transparency and

    oversight mechanisms for public construction projects





    The Indian subcontinent has a history of earthquakes. The reason for the intensity and high frequency of earthquakes is the Indian plate driving into Asia at a rate of approximately 47 mm/year.[1] The following is a list of major earthquakes which have occurred in India, including those with epicentres outside India that caused significant damage or casualties in the country.
