The April 2015 earthquake that devastated Nepal killing nearly 9,000 people and injuring around 22,000 severely damaged infrastructure as well and reconstruction is likely to be a long process.

Countries and foundations from around the world had poured in support for the mountain nation, but for the major reconstruction Nepal will be aided by India, China, the World Bank and Asian Development Bank.

Headed by Nepalese Prime Minister Puspa Kamal Dahal, a National Reconstruction Authority Advisory (NRA) Council has been formed to help foreign aid coordination and uniformity while ensuring proper use of allocated funds for the post-quake reconstruction work.

The Reconstruction committee will include Nepal government, other important Nepali stakeholders and donors and a representative from each of the four international donors, while welcoming domestic and foreign donors.

The work of the committee will begin with conducting a review of the progress conducted so far in reconstruction using foreign aid, before gibing formal suggestions for work to be done.
