Aid and Recovery in Post‐Earthquake Nepal: Eighteen Months On
Early findings from Independent Impacts and Recovery Monitoring Round Three
One and a half years after the devastating earthquakes in Nepal, how have conditions in the affected zone evolved? This brief provides preliminary findings from the third round of the Foundation’s longitudinal mixed method research, Independent Impacts and Recovery Monitoring Nepal (IRM) project, which was conducted in September 2016. Full reports will follow in February.
IRM’s ground research is conducted every six months to track the effectiveness of aid delivery and its impact on recovery in the aftermath of the 2015 earthquakes. This report series outlines findings from: (i) a quantitative survey of 4,850 respondents randomly selected across 11 districts of varying earthquake impact levels; and (ii) qualitative field monitoring in 36 wards of six districts.
This research is implemented by Democracy Resource Center Nepal, Interdisciplinary Analysts, and The Asia Foundation with financial support provided by the governments of the United Kingdom and Switzerland.
