Aid and Recovery in Post-Earthquake Nepal: Quantitative Survey September 2016


Eighteen months from the earthquakes that hit Nepal in April and May 2015, the third wave of the Independent Impacts and Recovery Monitoring project (IRM) tracks the extent to which people have recovered, what coping strategies they are using and how effective they are, how aid is helping and which groups are being left behind. IRM involves both large-scale quantitative surveys and in-depth qualitative fieldwork. This report provides data and findings from the third quantitative survey. The monitoring focuses on five key areas: aid delivery and effectiveness; politics and leadership; social relations and conflict; protection and vulnerability; and economy and livelihoods.

IRM is longitudinal, conducted at six month intervals over the course of two years. The fielding of the first wave was carried out six weeks after the earthquake, and the second wave in March 2016. Detailed findings from the quantitative survey and qualitative field research from both rounds, as well as a thematic study on reconstruction cash grants, can be found here. Each round of IRM produces three reports: a Quantitative Survey report; a Qualitative Field Monitoring report; and a Synthesis Report which summarizes and combines both reports. Briefs providing initial findings are also available around two months after fielding.

Releases of the Qualitative Field Monitoring report and a synthesis of both research components will follow soon.
