On 25 April 2015, at 11:56, a devastating earthquake of 7.6 magnitude struck Nepal. The epicenter was Barpak VDC of Gorkha District about 80 km northwest of Kathmandu. This was followed by several major aftershocks including in Sindhupalchowk with magnitudes of 6.6, 6.9 (26 April,Sindhupalchowk) and 6.8 (May 12, Dolakha).
A day after the earthquake, AAIN was in action undertaking the necessary assessments and planning for relief operations. An Emergency Response Programme (ERP) team was formed to respond to the disaster that Nepal faced. AAIN immediately responded with 15 days of food supplies in various quake-hit areas of 8 districts followed by emergency and transitional shelter support.
ActionAid International Nepal (AAIN) reached 2055 households in the Kathmandu valley with food supplies, 939 households with tarpaulins and 350 households with zinc sheets and construction tools (for constructing temporary shelters) in KotDanda, Thecho, Chapagaun, Badikhel, Sheshnarayan, Panga, Khokana and a few slum communities. AAIN provided Dignity Kits to 955 women aged 13-60 and also established 7 safe spaces for women, and 2 safe spaces for children. Outside Kathmandu valley, AAIN responded in Sindhupalchowk, Rasuwa, Dholka, Makwanpur, Kavre and Sankhuwasabha with emergency support.
After the completion of emergency response programme, the long term strategic plan was developed in close coordination with the partners and other stakeholders. The strategic plan which is known as Community Led Reconstruction Programme (CLRP) was launched in November 2015. AAIN,in the programme duration, will seek to innovate programmes to realise the idea of ‘build-back-better’ and engendering resilience within communities. Also it will strengthen the processes that transform the power relations and influence government policies on land rights and fair wages as an essential means of not only improving sustainable livelihoods, but also to build resilience of the affected communities. Post disaster reconstruction in this context as defined by AAIN not only refers to the reconstruction of physical infrastructure, but also the social, economic and psycho-social wellbeing of the community, and strengthening the processes, of democratic transformation of the country driven by the agency of people, organisations and movements. AAIN will thus engage in developing a critical mass of grassroots activists, facilitators and social movement leaders who can best articulate the Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) in disaster reconstruction process.
AAIN seeks to evaluate the impact and effectiveness of the Community Led Reconstruction Programme by conducting a Midterm Review(MTR) of the programme.
The overall objective of the MTR is to document the best practices of ActionAid signature areas of emergency response, evidences of innovation in process of building back better and interventions that build the resilience of the affected communities. The MTR will also recommend course for corrections, in terms of processes and actions so as to improve the overall quality and efficiency of the project to achieve the set objectives and anticipated results.
