Urban Displacement


One site in Kathmandu and two in Sindhupalchok district had reported that most people on sites were renting their houses before the earthquake. 9% estimated households living in all assessed sites were renting their houses before the earthquake. Urban1

A portion of sites were in urban settings in Bhaktapur (63%), Kathmandu (50%), Lalitpur (100%), Dhading (20%), Ramechhap (50%) and Sindhupalchok (15%). While making up a small portion of the displaced population, urban displacement poses very different policy and programmatic challenges from rural context.
