Jajarkot Earthquake : Quad-Day Situation Report (9-12 Dec)


This report provides a comprehensive overview of the challenges and responses following the disaster. It discusses the efforts in making temporary shelter and assistance to over 59,000 registered beneficiaries across five affected districts. The report highlights the substantial financial allocation from the government for temporary housing, yet notes the insufficiency of these funds in meeting the housing needs of an estimated 30,000 beneficiaries.
The document details the challenges in beneficiary data collection and the distribution of aid, with issues such as non-operational bank accounts impeding relief efforts. Significant progress in constructing temporary housing units is noted, although the total number completed remains undetermined due to slow updates on data base. Report also focuses on the administrative process of grants and additional financial burdens like frequent transportation cost on the earthquake affected people.
Furthermore, the report highlights the impact of the earthquake on agriculture and food security, with substantial losses in food grains and livestock. The cold weather has forced many affected individuals to return to unsafe homes, posing additional risks. The challenges in maintaining education are highlighted, with schools struggling to provide adequate learning environments. There's an emphasis on the need for standardized relief data collection to streamline and improve the efficiency of humanitarian efforts.
