Nepal Earthquake: One Year Later

The April and May 2015 earthquakes killed about 9,000 people in Nepal. No less than 650,000 houses were ruined, while the total loss of the country was estimated at around seven billion USD. One year after the devastating earthquakes, Nepal still struggles to regain its stability. One of the poorest countries in the world, it sits precisely on top of the collision of two massive tectonic plates: Indian and Eurasian. While big earthquakes are predicted in the horizon, there is another thing that should be anticipated by Nepal, a country which lies just below the snowy Himalayas: the climate change.
