Monthly Update (July 2011) UN Resident & Humanitarian Coordinator’s Office Nepal
Abstract:
1. July witnessed much activity in national politics, though with no tangible progress achieved by the end of the month. The political stalemate was dominated by the Maoists‟ internal debate on party work division and forging a uniform approach to the peace and constitution drafting processes. 2. There was only a low level of disruptive action and protests across the country during the month and there were few restrictions on movement reported by development or humanitarian partners. 3. Raising the issue of citizenship, Madheshi-based political parties continue to protest against voter registration in Banke and Kapilvastu districts. 4. According to district level human rights organizations, villagers are angry with the police for allegedly conniving with smugglers while at the same time harassing local residents who import small amounts of utility goods from nearby Indian towns over the border. 5. In the recent budget speech, the government has declared the establishment of a number of new municipalities across the country. In both Achham and Lamjung districts, this has generated local disputes. 6. Floods and landslides triggered by heavy monsoon rains since 1 June have caused various degrees of damage across Nepal. 7. According to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA), local authorities in the affected districts are effectively overseeing the flood and landslide response efforts. 8. The overall crop situation of both winter and summer 2010/11 across the country shows an improvement in production. 9. Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Trained resource persons have been mobilised in organising regional/district level training events in WASH coordination, with 42 representatives (from WSSDO, DHO, NRCS and NGOs) in 11 disaster prone districts having been trained on WASH rapid response techniques and life saving skills. 10. Under the relief, recovery and rehabilitation assistance to households affected by the August 2008 Koshi floods, 235 affected families at Haripur VDC have been resettled. #RobertPiper #RCO #RC #MonthlyUpdates
