The major crisis that hit Nepal in April 2015 had been the opportunity for Handicap Internatiopnal to assess the efficiency of its frame of actions in term of Disaster Risk Reduction. In order to do so the organization had commissioned last September an external and independent evaluation aiming to look at Handicap International’s contribution to the Earthquake Preparedness Project and to assess how this project contributed to the response to the 2015 earthquake in Nepal. This evaluation was conducted by an independent team of consultants from Groupe URD and Dr. Lakshmi Narayn Thakur, and funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Luxembourg. The general objective is to learn lessons and make recommendations to improve earthquake preparedness for future projects undertaken by all partners in the region.
