Following the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday 25 April 2015, REACH teams are on the ground in Kathmandu and affected rural areas to assist actors in the humanitarian response.
Initial maps have been produced to show the location of the earthquake, the population of affected areas prior to the disaster and the estimated extents of the damage. REACH has also produced a number of base maps to assist humanitarian actors on the ground to localise affected areas, to record damage and to plan their response to the immediate lifesaving needs of the thousands who are estimated to have been affected. In collaboration with coordinating bodies in the humanitarian response, REACH teams are currently designing a rapid assessment to gain a more detailed understanding of damage and initial needs related to shelter.
