Description of the assignment: The 2015 earthquake and its aftershocks had major impact on the housing stock, where over 800,000 houses fully collapsed and about 250,000 were partially damaged across 31 affected districts.
Reconstruction activities are underway however, there is an increasing risk of further marginalization of the poorest households in reconstruction, re-existing economic vulnerability of the rural poor is exacerbated by limited access to finance and construction materials necessary for basic levels of building reconstruction that is pre-requisite to receive government grants. The poorest HHs face multiple natural hazards that undermine their wellbeing over a long run. The ongoing COVID-19 outbreak is likely to exacerbate the economic vulnerability.
With funding support from ECHO, UNDP under CDRMP started the project the BBB project starting from Jan 2018 in the 15 Wards of Sindhupalchowk and Dolakha districts with specific focus on the most poor and vulnerable households. The project is focused on four outputs: reconstruction of disaster resilient houses, empowering the communities with self-determined resilient recovery plan and risk management for future disasters, resilient livelihood opportunities and creating enabling environment for inclusive, affordable and people centered reconstruction policies and action.
The purpose of the requested service is to assess the results (expected outputs and outcomes) of the project as mentioned above in major four output areas.
