PDF File Size: 1.17 MB | Download   
Nine months after the devastating earthquakes of 25 April and 12 May which struck Nepal, the overall humanitarian situation has improved. The aftershocks still being experienced though their frequencies are quite rare these days, and most of the countries have also lifted their travel restrictions to Nepal.
On 22 June, the Government of Nepal also declared an end to the emergency phase and a shift from humanitarian response to recovery. These recovery and reconstruction efforts are guided by the findings of the Government-led Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA) and supported by the International Conference on Nepal’s Reconstruction on 25 June where the international community pledged two-thirds ($4.4 billion) of the $6.7 billion appeal by the Government. The total financial losses from the earthquakes is estimated as $7.06 billion according to the PDNA findings.
UNICEF’s response in WASH was targeting 840,000 people ( both camps and communities) including children and women, in the 14 most severely affected districts with critical WASH interventions and information that will prevent child illness, especially diarrhoea. This includes supplying people with safe water of appropriate quality for drinking, cooking and personal hygiene, providing access to adequate sanitation and hand washing facilities, as well as providing hygiene kits and hygiene education through interpersonal communication. UNICEF is working closely with the Government through the Department of
Water Supply and Sewage and with over 15 implementing partners to support WASH needs of the affected population while also strengthening coordinated response and recovery works through WASH Cluster coordination at a national and sub-national level.
