Nepal: International Community Must Immediately Help Internally Displaced People
PDF File Size: 175 KB | Download   
The Asian Legal Resource Centre (ALRC) draws the attention of the Human Rights Council to the worsening condition of internally displaced persons in Nepal after the massive earthquake that hit the country on 25 April 2015. This earthquake, the biggest in decades, has killed thousands of people, has damaged property and heritage, and has left millions displaced, affected around 8.1 million people in all.
The impact of the disaster in Nepal, when the nation was just about coming to terms with the massive internal displacement witnessed in the wake of the decade long civil war, has washed off the gains made in rehabilitating those displaced by the war. The country witnessed large-scale displacement during the civil war, with numbers estimated to be anywhere between 30,000 to 150,000 people. There were serious problems in identifying the actual number of those displaced due to several reasons, including inaccessibility of many far flung areas of the country, as well as the underground nature of the Maoist insurgency that hindered attempts to ascertain the numbers of those displaced in areas under Maoist control.
