Carl Evans Event Profile Causes
Pakistan lies on the direct fault line of South East Asia. The earthquake occurred due to movement of the Eurasian and Indian plate.
The two plastes collided together causing an earthquake in the North East of Kashmir causing great devestation.
An alternate theory however, suggests that bomb testing in a local area could of triggered the earthquake. Impacts Practical reconstruction and rehabilitation were carried out after.
The basic infrastructure, including tertiary care, health, education, road networks, water supply, waste management and other basic needs, was still underdeveloped and had not reached pre-earthquake status in the region, hence mass destruction.
Central Asia Institute, a US NGO was the first organization to rebuild earthquake-resistant schools in Azad Kashmir in November 2006. They were not only earthquake-resistant but were the first 3 schools reconstructed after the disaster.
