UNICEF Nepal Working Paper Series: A Multitemporal, Multivariate Index To Dynamically Characterize Vulnerability Of Children and Adolescent In Nepal: Using Science in Humanitarian Response
PDF File Size: 4.55 MB | Download   
A large number of children and adolescents (population under the age of 20 years) in Nepal have been negatively impacted by the 7.8Mw earthquake of April 25, 2015 and its many aftershocks, particularly the 7.3Mw on May 12. Thousands of children, adolescents, and vulnerable people have been displaced from their homes, unable to attend schools, lacking access to health care facilities and dealing with psychological trauma from the event. The already vulnerable population has been weakened by the earthquake events and currently faces multiple imminent perils: the constant threat of more aftershocks and the possibility of flooding and more deadly landslides from the current monsoon rains. Furthermore, the type of negative effects the children and adolescents have suffered often become long-standing issues in poverty stricken countries such as Nepal (GAR, 2009 and Seballos, 2011). However, with timely threat-identification and proper preventative action, some of these threats can be lessened or alleviated. The discussion below lays out a method to identify these potential future impacts through a series of GIS overlays in an online atlas of “Stories of Nepal”.
