More than 1.8 million rural housing units have been renovated since the start of President Hassan Rouhani’s tenure in 2013, said Esmaeil Najjar, head of the Crisis Management Organization on Monday. “There are 45 different types of natural disasters in the world of which 35 like earthquakes, landslides and floods are most likely to occur in Iran, and therefore we should take effective steps to be ready for dealing with contingencies,” IRNA quoted him as saying.  Iran straddles several major seismic faults, and is prone to frequent earthquakes, and therefore rural buildings should be renovated to be made stronger and resilient.
