Bam: one year after - a lesson learned on building reinforcement

One year after this tragedy, the reconstruction process is slow and most of city’s inhabitants are still living under tents and provisional shelters. The Iranian Government has since hosted a number of conferences bringing together earthquake experts and has expressed its will to contruct new buildings which would be resilient to another disaster. Some lessons have been learned but the results are still falling short of what is needed to build a safer environment.
