Nepal

The massive earthquake that struck Nepal on 25th April 2015 caused over 3,000 deaths and affected the lives of thousands of people. To support the humanitarian response, an emergency REACH team was deployed to the country on Monday 27th of April. The aim of the deployment was to focus on assessing the priority needs of the affected people, such as shelter, food, health, water and sanitation. Throughout the deployment, and within the cluster framework, REACH teams examined high relief and very difficult to access terrain, such as the Langtang Mountain Valley,  situated in Rasuwa District, north of Kathmandu. In total, 15 district profiles were established (Bhaktapur, Ghorka, Khatmandu, Lalitpur, Makwanpur, Nuwakot, Sindhuli, Sindhupalchok, Dolakha, Rasuwa, RamechhapOkhaldhunga, Kapreval, Solokhumbu, Dhading), recording important data on displacement, housing damage, and temporary shelter.

In August 2015, REACH was re-deployed to Nepal to support: (1) Shelter Cluster response monitoring effort, and (2) Food Security Cluster assessment. The products from these deployments will be available shortly.
