The main output from our project is the hazard and vulnerability maps for GLOFs along the Puna Tsang Chu from Khuruthang to Lhamoizingkha at the Bhutan-India border. These maps can be used for future planning of various developmental activities and as a tool for better decision-making by concerned authorities. In our present project we have now identified the areas along the Puna Tsang Chu with different level of hazards of GLOF. As a recommendation for future projects, it is suggested that a safe area for each community identified in the present project may be required. This component could be incorporated into our present work since this by itself requires lots of data and entirely different working methodology for delineating a safe zone area for evacuation purpose during the time of GLOF in the future.
