UNICEF - WASH Earthquake Recovery Programme

Description

The catastrophic earthquake of 25th April 2015 measuring 7.8 Richter scale had its devastating consequences on human lives and property as well as infrastructures including WASH services in Nepal. The gains that Nepal had made so far in achieving the MDG targets on water and sanitation has been negatively challenged by the damages of water supply and sanitation services. UNICEF WASH Earthquake Recovery Programme will support reconstruction efforts in Nepal particularly in WASH sector with a particular focus on Disaster Risk Management. The expected results and outcomes of the programme are formulation and operationalization of disaster risk reduction and climate change policies, capacity building and system building for disaster preparedness and response and earthquake affected water supply schemes and school toilets and water systems rehabilitation. Rehabilitated water supply schemes will serve at least 33 000 people and school toilets and water systems rebuilding will serve at least 20 000 children. At least 20 000 school children will be also educated on Hand washing. Finland will support the programme with 1 million Euros in 2016.
