Statement by UN Humanitarian Coordinator on behalf of the Humanitarian Community in Nepal
Abstract:
Highlights: 1. The onset of winter in Nepal is projected to have an adverse impact on earthquake-affected communities living in high-altitude isolated areas. 2. The humanitarian organisations in Nepal are facing a race against time to ensure delivery of urgently required supplies such as food and shelter materials to these high altitude areas that will soon be cut off with the onset of winter. 3. Only a small time window remains before the available land access trails become closed in the coming weeks. 4. Due to limited ability to conduct deliveries by road and air during the recent monsoon season, a backlog of 1,200 MT of shelter and non-food item supplies is awaiting delivery to earthquake-affected population. 5. Eighty per cent of the supplies are warehoused in the districts, but acute shortages in fuel supplies continue to impede planned deliveries to affected villages and trailheads for onward transportation using mules and porters. #JamieMcGoldrick #RC #Speech #Humanitarian #Community
