In a new project titled, “Pakistan National Research Programme on Geological Hazards (Earthquakes and Landslides),” which aims to reduce disaster risk, geologists will be gathering data about the country’s ‘active faults’ and landslide hotspot zones.

According to the Associated Press of Pakistan, the Public Sector Development project would be completed at a cost of PKR412.769 million in a three-year period under the supervision of the Petroleum Division.

 

It will lead to the establishment of a new network of Globe Navigation Satellite Stations (GNSS – permanent as well as periodic) and a countrywide landslide inventory database.

During the first year of the project, the departments concerned will collect and review data and compile a preliminary report. This will pave the way for more detailed hazard assessment studies.
