The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) along with SAARC Disaster Management Centre (SDMC) and the National Planning Commission (NPC), Government of Nepal organised a regional recovery dialogue for building back better after the earthquake in Nepal on 26 April 2015. The dialogue aimed for providing a road map for the recovery process after the Nepal earthquake. Disaster management experts from various organisations across the region participated in the dialogue to share their experience and best practices followed in the region after major earthquakes. Their valuable contributions, in terms of the practices followed for disaster recovery, were eye-opening and will be of great value in the reconstruction process of Nepal.
This report summarises the exchanges and outcomes from the dialogue, and also captures additional case studies from the region that were referred to, but not shared in the workshop. The report is divided in four chapters. Chapter 1 presents the lessons from Asia-Pacific for Nepal’s earthquake recovery. Chapter 2 includes case studies of various earthquakes in the Asia-Pacific region. Chapter 3 includes deliberations carried out in the dialogue workshop. Chapter 4 provides a way forward for building back better in Nepal.
