Nepal after the earthquakes: German support to recovery and rehabilitation
In the immediate aftermath of the earthquakes, the German Government made available 5 million euros for humanitarian relief.
Germany is committing an additional 30 million euros to short- and long-term recovery and rehabilitation. With this support, we will help the affected families in the districts of Nuwakot, Rasuwa and Dhading to rebuild their lives by providing shelter and temporary housing, ensuring essential healthcare services, and by supporting the reconstruction of critical infrastructure. Given the long tradition of German cooperation with the city of Bhaktapur, Germany stands ready to explore potential support for reconstructing the city’s public infrastructure.
The new commitments for reconstruction and rehabilitation will complement the ongoing cooperation portfolio in Nepal, which has received funds totalling more than 1.1 billion euros since the beginning of our partnership.
