Children's Voices, Children's Rights: One Year After the Nepal Earthquake

Working Papers from eSocialSciences

Abstract: The consultations highlight the high rate of penetration of the Nepal earthquakes response (97.5 per cent of consulted children acknowledged to have benefitted from relief assistance), likely due to the ‘blanket approach’ adopted by the government and the humanitarian community. Despite this breadth of assistance, the overall activities for recovery and reconstruction need to be substantially accelerated. Pledges made at the June 2015 donor conference have not been fully utilized. Restrictions in movement of materials and supplies following protests against provisions contained within the newly promulgated constitution compounded this.
