One month after the major earthquake hit Nepal, life is slowly returning to normal in some parts, yet in worst affected districts thousands are still in need of humanitarian aid. There is urgent need to build temporary shelters that can last through the monsoon that is fast approaching. Jumpstarting early recovery process through debris removal, restoration of livelihoods and injecting cash through cash for work programme are critical in next few weeks.
UNDP is working with the Government of Nepal to support and strengthen the national recovery effort. UNDP has already started cash-for-work programmes, including debris removal which provides jobs and money to help survivors support their families.
