Briefing Note: Shelter and Reconstruction in Post‐Earthquake Nepal (IRM Phase 4)
Preliminary findings from IRM survey research conducted in April 2017
This note highlights early findings related to shelter and reconstruction from the fourth round of quantitative survey research for The Asia Foundation’s Independent Impacts and Recovery Monitoring Project (IRM). The survey work was implemented by Interdisciplinary Analysts. IRM is a mixed methods and longitudinal study tracking earthquake impacts and recovery over a period of two years (June 2015‐April 2017). The IRM surveys generate data from a sample of 4,854 households across 11 earthquake‐affected districts. The first round of the survey was conducted in June 2015, the second in February‐March 2016, the third in September 2016, with the fourth round implemented in April 2017. Data are weighted to ensure findings are representative. Where possible, the same people are interviewed in each round.
Funds to support IRM are provided by the UK Department for International Development and the Swiss Development Cooperation. The findings and analysis are those of The Asia Foundation and Interdisciplinary Analysts, not of the funders.
