PDF File Size: 499 KB | Download   
On 25 April 2015, a devastating earthquake hit Nepal causing severe destruction of lives and property in 14 of the country’s 75 districts. This was followed by another severe earthquake on 12 May which further worsened the humanitarian situation. The two earthquakes affected over 5 million people and the death toll was 8,702.The earthquakes destroyed 498,852 houses and 2,656 government buildings, besides partially damaging another 256,697 private houses and 3,622 government buildings.

Additionally, roads, bridges, water supplies,schools, hospitals in the main cities and in rural areas across more than two-third of Nepal’s 75 districts suffered severe damages.The humanitarian consequences from the earthquake triggered a large-scale international humanitarian response under the leadership of the Government of Nepal (GoN). The international humanitarian cluster system was formally activated immediately after the first earthquake by the Emergency Relief Coordinator (ERC) of the United Nations.
The immediate response UNDP should take are:
1) While focusing on getting the operations going, a clear articulation of how UNDP would work with the Government, other UN agencies, clusters and development partners (DP) on developing a short- and long-term recovery strategy with a long-term vision is required to in the first few weeks.
2) UNDP’s response should be determined by how it positions itself early on in support of the government’s overall recovery planning and strategy, and how it engages with various development partners and provides leadership to the early recovery cluster.
3) During and after a Post-Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA), UNDP needs to ensure that it has good capacity to develop a well-articulated strategy and vision, and communicate these with development partners and government agencies.
4) The surge plan needs to take into account clear analysis of interventions by other key actors,government priorities and donor environment in the country, besides the needs of affected communities.
