This volume was born out of a collaboration of scholars and practitionersconnected with Nepal and the Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience(IHRR) at Durham University. As editors we are indebted to all of thecontributors to this volume; their endeavour and enthusiasm has madethis volume possible. Our hearts go out to all those impacted by the Gorkha earthquake and similar events around the world. We hope our contribution can help document the terrible effects, celebrate the amazing strength and capacity of people and organisations who are involved in Nepal and offer a way to view such events in a more comprehensive way.Publication of this book celebrates the 10th Anniversary of IHRR and is a testament to four key attributes of IHRR: (1) the intellectual scope of the institute and those who collaborate with us, (2) the engagement of practitioners and communities around the world who generously work with us and contribute to our research, (3) the commitment of donors and friends who helped initiate IHRR and continue to support us and (4) the desire of everyone involved with IHRR to support people living with hazard and risk. As we celebrate our 10th anniversary we want to thank you for working with us.
