Before the nation could catch its breath, a major aftershock ripped through the country on May 12, killing thousands more.
Nearly 9,000 Nepalis died in the tremors. Some 500,000 buildings were destroyed, and hundreds of thousands lost their homes.
Voices from Nepal is a look at the days after. Based on in-depth interviews with reporters, editors and other communicators, the first section of this book maps the challenges that Nepali journalists faced, and outlines best practices for future scenarios.
The second section contains original journalism that focuses on the lived experiences of Nepalis. Through in-depth features and personal stories from survivors, it tells the story of a post-disaster society.
The report was launched on 13th September 2018 in Yala Maya Kendra, Lalitpur, at an event hosted by UNESCO Nepal.
