14 Sep 2017 Supporting Nepal on earthquake recovery, resilience & tenure security
Building on an earlier post on GLTN’s ongoing work in Nepal, we are pleased to share with you latest developments from the central Himalayan country. Recently, the Land and GLTN technical team, UN Habitat Nepal, and Kadaster (Netherlands) had a mission to Nepal where they engaged with project implementers; HURADEC Nepal, Community Self Reliance Centre (CSRC) and the Ministry for Land Reform and Management (MOLRM) over the progress on the ongoing initiative, “Support Land Reform in Nepal and Land Tenure Initiatives in Asia Pacific”. A successful training on the STDM was conducted which also included learning how to use satellite images to support implementation of the spatial framework.
The GLTN is supporting Nepal in the improvement of earthquake recovery and resilience and tenure security of affected communities in at least four municipalities in Dolakha District using fit-for-purpose solutions. The post-earthquake land intervention will directly benefit some 1,020 affected families in Jilu, Phulappa, Boshimpa and Bulungkhani communities in Dolkaha, one of the districts worst affected by the 25 April and 12th May 2015 earthquakes, with the epicenter located in Dolakha district. GLTN is also supporting Nepal in the implementation of national land reforms including the development of national land policy.
Photos show the training, learning and sharing sessions.
