Nepal Earthquake 2015: Post Disaster Needs Assessment - Executive Summary
PDF File Size: 1.95 MB | Download   
On Saturday, 25 April 2015 at 11:56 local time, a 7.6 magnitude earthquake as recorded by Nepal’s National Seismological Centre (NSC), struck Barpak in the historic district of Gorkha, about 76 km northwest of Kathmandu. Nepal had not faced a natural shock of comparable magnitude for over 80 years. Within three days of the second earthquake on 12 May 2015, the Government of Nepal convened a meeting of local development partners and called for a Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) to be carried out under the leadership
of the National Planning Commission (NPC). The purpose was to assess the impact of the di-
saster and define a recovery strategy, including its funding implications, for the restoration of livelihoods, economy and services, rehabilitation and reconstruction of housing and infrastructure to ensure a resilient recovery. The PDNA follows a methodology jointly developed by the European Union, the World Bank and the UN system that incorporates a collection of analytical methods, tools and techniques developed for post-disaster assessments and recovery planning, ensuring sector to sector comparability and homogeneity in the definition of basic concepts of damages, losses and post-disaster recovery needs. The assessment builds on the initial and detailed sector damage assessments undertaken by central and local governments and the clusters established by the government with support from development partners.
