Protection : Nepal Earthquake Cluster Brief ( July 2015 )
Abstract:
Non-discriminatory access to humanitarian assistance and targeted support for people with specific concerns, including female headed households, children, people with disabilities, the elderly, caste-based and ethnic minorities, and indigenous communities, remain priority concerns. For all affected people, psychosocial support and access to accurate and timely information on assistance and protection programmes are critically important. Loss of civil documentation poses an obstacle, to access essential services and earthquake compensation. Trafficking is a heightened risk, in particular for women and children, who also face an increased risk of gender-based violence (GBV). Mainstreaming protection across all sectors is a priority. Monsoon-induced landslides, rockslides and floods present an additional risk; it is essential that any evacuation of communities at risk is implemented in line with national and international standards and that evacuated communities are supported to return home, safely and voluntarily, once monsoon-induced risks subside.
