A powerful magnitude-7.8 earthquake has devastated Nepal, claiming more than 3,600 lives and counting. As business continuity and disaster management professionals, we know that a disaster of this size will profoundly affect hundreds of thousands and have a lingering impact on the region for years to come. Thousands of homes have been destroyed and more will become known as events unfold. It is important that we come together and support the people of Nepal to build back better and invest in designing a resilient community that can better withstand this type of devastation.
