Disaster Displacement: Nepal Country Briefing

Publication | December 2022

This Nepal country briefing explains why events including monsoon floods, droughts, landslides, and earthquakes force thousands of people to leave their homes each year and shows how stronger data can support prevention and preparedness.

A copublication with the Internal Displacement Monitoring Centre, it assesses the scale and major causes of displacement, along with the impacts on health, housing, livelihoods, and education. It analyzes the long-term effects on families, considers the government’s disaster risk reduction and displacement plans, and outlines how granular data could be used to draw up more inclusive prevention strategies as climate change intensifies.
