The goal of World Vision's response to the 2015 Nepal Earthquake is ‘to meet the emergency needs and strengthen the resilience and self-recovery of earthquake-affected children and their communities’. Programmes implemented to achieve the goal have focused on providing immediate relief and services in shelter/non-food items (NFI), water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), education, health, child protection and food.

In order to assess the quality of World Vision’s response to the crisis a real time evaluation (RTE) was conducted from 6 July to 16 July 2015. The RTE assessed the Response against six criteria: effectiveness and timeliness, appropriateness, coverage, accountability, connectedness and sustainability, and organisational efficiency.

The RTE was for the period from 25 April to 16 July 2015, the immediate response phase. The Government of Nepal, UNOCHA (United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs), and many INGOs (international NGOs), including WVI, have documented in detail the earthquake’s effects and the response by various actors. The RTE report does not repeat these earlier findings.
