Description

Despite recent progress to rebuild affected areas, housing remains a key concern. Powerful aftershocks in the weeks following the 25 April earthquake have triggered fear of further destruction, even in areas where housing damage has been minimal. The effect of the earthquakes on food security has also been significant, with widespread loss of food stocks and severe disruptions to market functionality and access in some areas. The current landslides and the expected worsening of road and trail conditions during the upcoming monsoon season is also of significant concern.
