Changing the Narrative Building Back in Nepal
Abstract:
The 25 April earthquake in central Nepal and subsequent aftershocks including 6.8 on 12 May left over 8,600 people dead and more than 22,000 injured. The earthquakes have further destroyed houses, small business and common market facilities. Significant damage to enterprises, markets and livelihoods has occurred- up to 90% in the most affected areas, with significant loss of livelihood assets and infrastructure. Major sources of livelihoods of the people in the affected areas were their small farms, agro products, sale of vegetables, artisanal products and jobs from local tourism services. The earthquakes has threatened almost all of these livelihoods. Chronic vulnerabilities such as poverty, social exclusion and inequality and remoteness undermine coping mechanisms of the affected communities.
