As a result of the two major earthquakes that struck Nepal on 25 April and 12 May 2015, nearly 9,000 lives were lost and over a half a million homes were destroyed. It is estimated that the lives of eight million people, almost one-third of the population of Nepal, were affected by these earthquakes. After more than two years following these catastrophic events, approximately 400,000 houses are still to be rebuilt along with numerous community structures. Similarly, floods in August 2017 brought by the heaviest rainfall in 15 years triggered widespread large scale flooding and landslides affecting 27 of the country’s 75 districts and have initially affected an estimated 1.7 million people. According to the Post Flood Recovery Needs Assessment (PFRNA) carried out by the National Planning Commission (NPC), an estimated NPR 73.22 billion is required to support the recovery efforts.

In 2018, IOM plans to support reconstruction or reinforcement of at least eight critical community infrastructures (hospitals/clinics, schools) and public buildings with Water and Sanitation (WASH) facilities in eight municipalities within the highly affected districts. In addition, IOM will identify and map open spaces and safeguard these spaces for use as evacuation centres and shelter by communities and government in five targeted municipalities. Likewise, IOM will orientate and train newly elected local government officials and community members on mainstreaming DRR and preparedness in reconstruction within local development plans to increase effectiveness and sustainability of overall recovery efforts. IOM will also train officials from security forces on CCCM as they are the first responders to any disaster in the country. Moreover, IOM will engage in advocacy and support to long-term solutions for landless flood affected people.

IOM is co-leading the CCCM cluster and works closely with the Shelter cluster lead and co-lead. IOM also works in close coordination with the Department of Urban Development and Building Construction, Ministry of Home Affairs, Ministry of Federal Affairs and Local Development and National Reconstruction Authority. IOM has good presence in the HCT and works closely with various UN agencies, INGOs and NGOs.

Overall Targeted Beneficiaries: 11,890 earthquake-affected IDPs and 4,000 flood-affected landless person
