Hydropower development in Bhutan has gained considerable ground as a sector capable of contributing to the development of the country. In 2012, Bhutan earned $177 million through energy export. However, these developmental activities are also prone to natural hazards like landslides since the region lies in a high risk earthquake prone zone and also registers heavy rainfall. These landslides, at times, dam the steep narrow valleys of Bhutan and breach landslide dams that can cause serious hazards downstream.
