Description

On April 25, 2015, Nepal experienced a 7.8 magnitude earthquake—the largest in 80 years. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) partnered with Microsoft to scale their efforts, drive collaboration, and ensure aid and relief efforts are effective. Front-line responders in Nepal are using the Microsoft cloud to store and process data, helping to obtain needed insights and maximize impact. And a joint poverty alleviation initiative is using the cloud to collaborate with other partner organizations, providing support to over 13,000 micro-enterprises and helping them to get businesses back on their feet.
