Nepal Earthquake: District Profile - Dolakha (19 August 2015)
Abstract:
Dolakha was the epicentre of the 12 May earthquake. While the 25 April earthquake caused widespread damage to the area, the second earthquake led to more severe damages and casualties in Dolakha and other eastern districts. Access has been the primary constraint to the delivery of and access to assistance in hard-to-reach northern VDCs. This has affected nearly all sectoral response, particularly since the onset of monsoon season which has led to an increase in impassible roads and a backlog in air transport. Humanitarian actors have prioritised emergency assistance in light of the onset of monsoon season; now planning for recovery and winterisation is required as the vast majority of Dolakha’s popuation reside in areas with mean January temperatures below 5 degrees Celsius. Authorities have requested that humanitarian partners support with permanent, rather than temporary or semi-permanent, structures – for housing, temporary learning centres (TLCs), as well as health facilities.
