Landslides and Displacement in Earthquake Affected areas: Bi-Weekly Update (27 July 2015)
PDF File Size: 729 KB | Download   
Key Findings:
1. The most recently available data from mid-May indicates that over two million people are not living in their original houses. Around 2.5%, or 60,000 people, are residing in sites with 20 or more HH. The majority of those displaced reside in close proximity to their house. Between 2-6% of the pre-earthquake population of many districts left their home district after the earthquake. Currently, at least 117,000 people are residing outside of their district of normal residence, either because of economic migration or in search of safe shelter.
2. Movement due to landslides and the risk of landslides is increasing. Over 50,000 people live in areas that have experienced a large number of landslides in the two months after the earthquake. On 30 June, the Government issued a directive to district-level authorities to evacuate an estimated 50,000 HHs in 200 settlements considered at high-risk of landslides; planning figures were revised down to about 15,000 HHs in mid-July. According to various media reports, fewer than 800 HHs had been evacuated by district authorities since the directive was issued, while about 8,000 HHs have reportedly self-relocated without Government support.
3. The available data on displacement shows that overall movement between districts has decreased since the earthquake. For instance, the majority of districts outside of the Kathmandu Valley experienced large inflows of persons from other districts directly after the earthquake. However, since mid-June these numbers have mostly stabilised at a slightly higher level than normal.
