Weekly Situation Update (17 July 2015)
Abstract:
This week the Government proposed its 2015/16 fiscal year budget to parliament, totalling USD 8.19 billion, about one-third higher than the previous year. The proposal allocates USD 896 million, or 11% of the budget, to rebuild earthquake-affected infrastructure with the majority of this amount allotted to the housing sector. DDRCs in Gorkha, Sindhupalchok, Nuwakot, and Dhading are in the process of finalising plans for evacuations under the 30 June Government directive to evacuate settlements at high-risk of landslides. Under the plans between 1,800-2,200 HHs in each district would require evacuation. Settlements in two VDCs in Nuwakot have reportedly been evacuated in the past week. The media reported that the Gorkha District Disaster Relief Committee (DDRC) initiated the evacuation of 1,749 households from 11 VDCs due to landslide risk. In a separate development, 33 HHs have left their homes after the banks of the Budhi Gandaki river started eroding due to increasing water levels. Landslide debris was reportedly falling from nearby hills threatening to block the river and lead to flooding. The media reported a Government announcement that all makeshift shelters in Tundikhel, Kathmandu should be evacuated by 17 July. Over 800 earthquake victims are currently residing in 68 tents in open field. Local media reported that 16 people were hospitalised for typhoid fever in Phulpingkot VDC in Sindhupalchok. People reportedly fell sick after using a new spring as a drinking water source. District teams made up of health and water and sanitation experts responded to the outbreak.
