Resident Coordinator’s Annual Report 2015: Brief Description of Major Development or Political and Economic Events that Have Had an Effect on the Work of the UNCT.
Abstract:
On April 25 and 12 May two back-to-back major earthquakes struck Nepal causing severe destruction in 31 districts with 14 most affected out of the 75 districts in the country. A total of 8,891 people were confirmed dead, more than 600,000 houses destroyed,288,255 houses and 691 historical monuments damaged. Together with the Government of Nepal,the affected communities themselves, thousands of volunteers, over 450 humanitarian agencies responded to deliver critical life-saving aid. The UN Country Team responded to the disaster and worked tirelessly to ensure even the most remote villages were reached. However, the engagement and implementation of the reconstruction was delayed as the legislation on the Reconstruction Authority and the appointment of a CEO was finalized only in December. In Nepal, the devastation caused by the earthquakes and the disruption in trade in the second half of 2015 hurt economic investment and activity hard. The GDP growth for 2015 is projected to have been 2.5%, as opposed to 4.4% in 2014. #2015 #UNRCO #JamieMcGoldrick #RC #AnnualReport
