Post-earthquake Recovery Initiatives

PNMF is forging collaborations with various national and international partners (e.g., UNM4Nepal and Nepal Study Center) to foster innovation (e.g., sustainable dwelling) to help impoverished rural villages affected by the disaster.  After facing two back-to-back earthquake shocks on April 25th and May 12th, the devastation suffered by Nepal is staggering: more than 8000 deaths, three million people displaced, 600,000 homes destroyed, 20,000 schools in ruin, more than 600 rural clinics leveled, several massive landslides, picturesque towns obliterated, and many cultural icons reduced to rubble.  After carrying out the initial rescue and relief efforts to supply food, shelters, and medicine by the government and relief agencies, Nepal is gradually entering into a phase of recovery and reconstruction.  The success of Nepal’s recovery effort from this calamity will depend on our ability to understand the way our communities have co-existed with its physical and biological environment.

PNMF is actively working with its collaborators to rebuild Nepal through three projects:

 One Clinic, One School, One Temple

A collaborative team consisting of a student group from the University of New Mexico (UNM4Nepal), Kathmandu University, Dhulikhel Hospital Kathmandu University Hospital, Pratiman-Neema Memorial Foundation (PNMF), the Department of Civil Engineering, and the Nepal Study Center..
