Rebuilding Nepal three years on
This booklet captures the key efforts undertaken and results achieved over the past three years by UNDP in line with the vision articulated in its Strategy for Earthquake Recovery Assistance: including strengthening the National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) while making recovery planning and coordination effective; resurrecting community infrastructure and public services; restoring livelihoods; and boosting disaster risk reduction and resilience.
Three years have passed since the earthquakes of April and May 2015 rattled Nepal to its very core. The country is well into the recovery and reconstruction phase today; while significant progress has been made in expediting private house reconstruction, a great deal remains to be done: hundreds of thousands are still living in makeshift shelters, battling food and water shortages, and struggling to earn a decent living.
