The Road To Recovery: Cash Transfers As An Emergency Response And A Catalyst To Enhance The Social Protection System In Nepal - Project Briefing
PDF File Size: 724 KB | Download   
On 25 April and 12 May 2015, two powerful earthquakes of magnitude 7.8 and 7.3 on the Richter scale struck the central part of Nepal. They were followed by more than 150 aftershocks. The total damage and financial losses have been estimated as US$ 7.05 billion, equivalent to 36 percent of the country’s GDP as of 2014. An estimated 700,000 to 982,000 people are expected to be pushed below the international poverty line of US$ 1.25 a day due to the loss of houses, income-generating opportunities, and productive and
durable assets, according to the Post-Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA). Additionally, the
deterioration of water and sanitation services, disruption of schools and health services and the possible increase in food insecurity may lead to even more serious impacts in terms of multidimensional poverty. Since day one, UNICEF has been working closely with the government of Nepal and other international and local partners on a large-scale emergency response operation including actions for immediate relief and early recovery. As part of this assistance, UNICEF is supporting the government to provide an emergency top-up cash transfer to beneficiaries of the existing social assistance programmes for vulnerable groups in the 19 most severely affected districts. As well as providing immediate relief to those affected by the earthquakes, the US$15 million programme provides an opportunity to strengthen and progressively scale-up the child grant, reinforce the building blocks of an integrated social protection system, and help develop a model for social transfers that works in both regular development and emergency contexts.
