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.


What We Do

UNDP is the UN's global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 177 countries and territories, working with them on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. As they develop local capacity, they draw on the people of UNDP and our wide range of partners. UNDP has been supporting the Nepalese people in their struggle against poverty since it opened an in-country office in 1963.
