Supporting Nepal to Build Back Better: Key Achievements in UNDP’s Earthquake Response
PDF File Size: 1.15 MB | Download   
Two devastating earthquakes hit Nepal in April and May of 2015. The death toll climbed to over 8,700 while more than 22,000 people were injured. Out of 75 districts in Nepal, 33 were affected by the earthquakes,14 of which were heavily damaged. In the hardest hit districts, as much as 95 percent of the structures were destroyed. Some 3 million people were displaced and hundreds of thousands of livelihoods are lost or damaged. Over 800,000 buildings were destroyed or damaged and public infrastructure lost, making government services slow to return. UNDP, a long-standing partner of Nepal, has been at the fore of the earthquake early recovery and response. From co-leading the Early Recovery Cluster and facilitating the Post-disaster Needs Assessment, to engaging in emergency employment in debris clearance, UNDP has, and continues, to assist the Government of Nepal to recover from the disaster and build Nepal back better.
