Post Flood Recovery Needs Assessment
Dec 1, 2017
The 2017 monsoon brought excessive rainfall within a compressed calendar, resulting in flash floods across a wide swathe of Nepal’s plains. The impact has been severe in 18 districts, with extensive loss of life and property. Successive disasters have demonstrated Nepal’s high vulnerability to natural hazards and they underscore the need for better preparedness and plans for more resilient recoveries.
The Post Flood Recovery Needs Assessment (PFRNA) presents an objective basis for recovery planning as well as measures for reducing future risks. There are pockets of acute poverty and vulnerability in the Terai-Madhesh. The Recovery Strategy presents a roadmap through which the Government of Nepal aims to undertake the ambitious task of recovery in concert with the private sector, development partners and non-governmental alliances.
