Following the devastating earthquakes of 2015, UNOPS has led various activities supporting the government of Nepal in the assessment of damaged buildings and the enrollment of beneficiaries into housing grant schemes.
UNOPS expanded its footprint in post-earthquake reconstruction and provided socio-technical assistance to individual households, developing innovative approaches to retrofitting earthquake-damaged homes and providing services to the most vulnerable households, ensuring nobody is left behind.
While ensuring gender, diversity and inclusion is mainstreamed in all its projects, UNOPS has further supported government efforts to reform the security sector and supports Nepal’s innovation agenda by creating new opportunities and jobs for the people of Nepal.
