The devastating earthquake that struck Nepal on 25 April 2015 and its repeated aftershocks have had a big toll on life, property, infrastructure, cultural heritage and the ambient natural environment of the country. Nearly 9000 people have been killed, 22,000 injured, over half a million houses fully or partially damaged and three million people rendered homeless. Over thousand public buildings including the Seat of the Government have not been spared by the impacts of the devastation.

Some of the monuments of immense historical, cultural and archeological significance, that also include the World Heritages, have been badly damaged. As monsoon approaches the people rendered homeless will further confront severe difficulties. This entails urgent humanitarian response.
