Resource Guide: Nepal’s Journey from Post-Earthquake Reconstruction to Resilience

On April 25, 2015, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake devastated Nepal, followed less than one month later by a 7.3 magnitude earthquake. Together, the earthquakes took 8,970 lives, left thousands homeless, and impacted 8 million people. A Post Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA), supported by the World Bank and other development partners, estimated the physical damage to be around $7 billion.
