The planned “Natural-hazard symposium for Indian Himalaya 2021" from October 25 to October 28, 2021 aims to create awareness of multiple perspectives and research domains in the Indian Himalayan region regarding natural hazards. The Indian Himalayan Region represents a significant role in the world’s mountain ecosystems. It is young and tectonically active, prone to multi-hazard like floods, landslides, earthquakes among others and suffers great loss of life and property every year. Natural hazard frequency has risen in recent decades in IHR, resulting in massive socio-economic losses.
