Nepal Environment and Humanitarian Action (EHA) Country-Level Study
The Nepal Environment and Humanitarian Action (EHA) country-level study is one in a series of studies undertaken by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) / UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) Joint Environment Unit (JEU) in 2015 that assesses the extent to which environmental concerns have been mainstreamed in humanitarian action.
In July 2015, the JEU undertook a ten day mission to Nepal to better understand environmental mainstreaming in a rapid onset emergency and provide guidance and advice to humanitarian actors on how to improve mainstreaming efforts. The study indicates that while there is generally a high level of awareness of the need to support environmental mainstreaming, much more can be done to integrate environment into preparedness actions in high risk countries.
