Reaching The Unreached Nepal Earthquake: Six Months Review
PDF File Size: 2.45 MB | Download   
The earthquakes of magnitude 7.8 and 7.3 that struck Nepal on 25 April and 12 May left a devastating effect on the Himalayan nation. Out of the 75 districts in Nepal, 31 districts were considered “most affected” and within that, a subgroup of 14 districts were classified severely affected and prioritized for humanitarian assistance. These districts have an estimated total affected population of 2.8 million, out of which 1.1 million (40 per cent) are children. Nearly 9,000 people lost their lives while 22,400 people were injured according to the Ministry of Home Affairs. A total of 530,000 people in 11 districts are facing acute food insecurity due to severe impact of the earthquakes on crop production and due to loss of livestock1. The total financial losses from the earthquakes is estimated as $7.06 billion according to the Government-led Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA). This is an equivalent of 36 per cent of Nepal’s GDP as of 2014. Six months after the earthquakes, the frequency of aftershocks has decreased, and the country has slowly begun to move towards recovery and reconstruction.
