On April 25, 2015, a severe earthquake in Nepal  resulted in the loss of more than 3,000 lives. It also caused destruction and  serious damage to the historic center of Kathmandu and other heritage sites  throughout the Kathmandu Valley. Nepal plans to re-open three of the damaged  UNESCO World Heritage Sites, though the sites are still in need of $100 million  in repairs. To find out more about plans to re-open sites, click  here. ICOMOS-ICORP and ICCROM have started the  Kathmandu Cultural Emergency Crowdmap to collect information on the damage  caused to cultural heritage sites and institutions in Nepal. If you wish to  participate in this effort, please click here. There is  additional information about the Crowdmap here. Also, please feel free  to share these links with others who may have knowledge about cultural sites in  Nepal. Thank you for your participation. To learn more, click here.
