WFP (Nepal) SPECIAL OPERATION SO (200848)
PDF File Size: 6.36 MB | Download   
On Saturday 25th April 2015, an earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter Scale was recorded in Nepal. Reports indicate a large number of casualties and widespread damage throughout the affected areas. The Government of Nepal has declared a state
of emergency in the country.
The geographical area affected by the earthquake includes mountainous and remote areas, increasing the potential for logistics constraints on operations. Extensive damage to infrastructure in the affected areas has been reported. The airport of Kathmandu is operational but due to its small size it is expected to become congested when the large amount of relief items start coming through.
Through this special operation WFP will, in its capacity as Logistics and Emergency
Telecommunications Cluster lead, support the relief efforts of the Humanitarian
Community and of the Nepali authorities.
The special operation provides for:
- Logistics coordination, GIS mapping and information management for the
logistics response.
- Logistics augmentation including: strategic airlifts and other air cargo
services, temporary inter-agency storage and cargo reception facilities, a
dedicated truck fleet for surface transport of humanitarian cargo within Nepal
and overland from India if needed and emergency road repairs.
- Provision of emergency telecommunications required for the humanitarian
community to respond to the crisis.
