OCHA is the part of the United Nations Secretariat responsible for bringing together humanitarian actors to ensure a coherent response to emergencies. The OCHA Nepal presence was created in response to the 25 April 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Nepal with the epicenter located 81 km northwest of the capital city of Kathmandu.

The Nepal Earthquake Severity Index is designed to provide an overview of estimated severity of impacts resulting from the earthquake of 25 April 2015. It is not a replacement for first hand damage and needs assessment information, but can support prioritisation during early stages of the response.
It estimates severity based on: 1) the intensity of the earthquake; 2) population; 3) vulnerability of housing and population.
This index will be updated to take account of: validation against first hand reports and improvements to the severity model; improved sources of data (quality, timeliness and scale); changing requirements as the response continues. Version 2 is the latest version of the Index.
Please see the Nepal Earthquake Severity Index (Version 4 - 30 April 2015) for more information
