Aid and Recovery in Post-Earthquake Nepal: Synthesis Report (Phase 2)
One year on from 25 April 2015, when a devastating earthquake hit Nepal, the situation in affected areas reveals the depth of impacts and the complex ways in which recovery is occurring. The second wave of the Independent Impacts and Recovery Monitoring (IRM), conducted in March 2016, tracks changes since last June through a mix of quantitative and qualitative research methods. 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 around six-month intervals over the course of two years. The fielding of the first wave was carried out six weeks after the earthquake. Detailed findings can be found in the Quantitative Survey and Qualitative Field Monitoring reports. The Synthesis Report summarizes and combines both reports.
The three reports from this round are products of methodologically robust ground research which follows up on how aid has impacted lives in affected areas and how people cope with immediate and long term challenges. By shedding light on the evolving situation on the ground, the IRM project aims to contribute to effective and sustainable recovery plans.
