WFP Nepal Earthquake Situation Report #15 (30 June 2015)
Abstract:
In line with the priorities of the Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA), WFP is now transitioning its earthquake response to promote early recovery by: i) increasing the use of cash transfers; ii) bolstering the food security monitoring capacity to collect quality information on damaged assets and infrastructure; iii) supporting the transport of urgently needed shelter and reconstruction materials on behalf of the entire humanitarian community; iv) reducing the risk of future disasters by building on preparedness activities undertaken with the Government of Nepal prior to the earthquake. WFP’s response to the twin earthquakes has played a pivotal role in promoting local investment, as well as creating employment opportunities. Examples of this are WFP’s work with local mountaineering agencies to repair Nepal’s trails and trekking routes to revive the tourism sector, as well as reinvigorating the local economy through cash transfers. Targeting 1.15 million for Phase II of its operation, WFP has so far reached over 386,700 people with in-kind food rations, cash distributions (US$370,723) and nutrition supplements to prevent acute malnutrition for children under two, and pregnant and nursing women. In collaboration with the World Health Organisation (WHO), WFP continues to restore Nepal’s health care services. WFP has completed five clinics in Dhading district, with each clinic taking under a week to set up. Work has begun on four more clinics in Rasuwa district. Primarily focusing on rehabilitation and recovery through cash-based interventions, for the next and final phase of its operation, WFP is in urgent need of US$73 million, including its special operations for logistics and telecommunications support for the entire humanitarian community and the United Nations Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS).
