Aid and Recovery in Post-Earthquake Nepal: One Year On


The devastating earthquake that struck Nepal on 25 April 2015 impacted hundreds of thousands of lives. High quality information from affected areas is critical to planning and delivering recovery and reconstruction assistance. The Independent Impacts and Recovery Monitoring for Accountability in Post-Earthquake Nepal (IRM) project provides regular and rigorous data on how people’s needs are evolving, the challenges they face, the coping strategies they use, and the extent to which aid is helping. IRM involves both in-depth qualitative research and a large 4,000+ household survey in eleven affected districts. Waves of research are conducted at roughly six month intervals to track how conditions and needs are changing over time. A briefing note outlining findings from the second wave of research (March 2016) is now available. Full reports will follow in June 2016.

The 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.
