FINAL REPORT: UNFPA Nepal Emergency Response Evaluation A Joint Initiative of UNFPA and the Columbia University School for International and Public Affairs Columbia University New York, NY May 2009
Abstract:
Nepal is simultaneously a developing country, a country in transition, and a country in humanitarian crisis. The fact that Nepal is vulnerable to natural disasters only further compounds the country’s challenge for social, economic, and political development. Nepal is ranked as the 11th most at-risk country to earthquakes, the 30th most vulnerable to floods, and remains one of 20 of the most multi-hazard prone countries in the world.The unremitting rains in 2008 flooded large swaths of the heavily populated southern plains, known as the Terai. As a result, between 70,000 and 100,000 persons were affected and 40,000 persons were displaced.2 Because of the country’s susceptibility to natural disasters and given that the newly democratic state remains relatively untested at this early stage, the populations of Nepal are especially vulnerable. As a result of recent humanitarian situations, the United Nations (UN) set up an Inter-Agency Standing Committee in Nepal (IASC) to coordinate UN, donor, and non-governmental organization (NGO) humanitarian response with the Government of Nepal (GoN). UNFPA’s work is imperative in humanitarian relief in Nepal due to significant unmet need in the areas of reproductive health (RH) and gender-based violence (GBV). #LANDSLIDE #CRISIS #RESPONSE #HYGIENE #SEXUALHEALTH #SEXUALVIOLENCE #MARGINALIZED #DATACOLLECTION #INTERVIEW #EMERGENCY #COORDIDATION #IMPLEMENTATION #IMPACT #MONITORING #SUSTAINABILITY #NEEDS #COVERAGE #EFECTIVENESS #GDI #GON #NEPALFLOODS2009
