Logistics and Telecommunications Augmentation and Coordination in Response to the Earthquake in Nepal

Countries: Nepal | Operations ID: 200848 | Operations type: Special Operation (SO)

This operation has been modified as per budget revision 5 (see below).

On Saturday 25th April 2015, an earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter Scale was recorded in Nepal. Reports indicate a large number of casualties and widespread damage throughout the affected areas. The Government of Nepal has declared a state of emergency in the country.
The geographical area affected by the earthquake includes mountainous and remote areas, increasing the potential for logistics constraints on operations. Extensive damage to infrastructure in the affected areas has been reported. The airport of Kathmandu is operational but due to its small size it is expected to become congested when the large amount of relief items start coming through.

This BR 5 to SO 200848 extends the project in time by twleve months until 31 December 2017 and adjusts the budget plan in accordance with the revised operational needs.
