The 2008 Joint Assessment Mission was held from 9 through 20 June. Representatives from UNHCR and WFP and two donor representatives (ECHO, and the US Embassy) based in Kathmandu accompanied their colleagues based in Damak in the far eastern areas of the Terai in Nepal for three days of field visits in the camps. The Mission participants were divided into three teams, each with specific areas of focus. The findings and recommendations of each team were consolidated and presented to the entire mission members and the implementing partners in Damak. They were then revised and presented to the Country Directors of UNHCR and WFP in Kathmandu and then the
Government of Nepal.
