After a tumultuous 2015 marked by two earthquakes in April and May, the country spent last year looking forward and setting the stage for significant changes. The National Reconstruction Authority was operationalized and rapidly scaled up the earthquake recovery; governance reforms took shape following the adoption of the new Constitution in September 2015; and the country laid the foundation for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

This report is the result of 2100 surveys completed in randomly selected households throughout the 14 priority affected districts, as well as one focus group discussion and feedback aggregated from four partner organisations.

DOLAKHA DISTRICT, NEPAL, 1 March 2017

Laxmi Devishretha hasn’t spoken for a week. Silent but for the rhythmic in-and-out of the oxygen tank pumping through her nostrils, the 83-year-old lies in a hospital bed, tucked up to her chin in a red fleece blanket. At this point, she’s largely given up trying to make herself heard.

The road to Dolakha district from Kathmandu is a familiar one to me, but one that I have not travelled since the earthquake wrought its destruction nearly two years ago. Bumping along it, the glint of metal in sunlight catches the eye. In place of mud-washed or lime-washed houses, corrugated iron seems omnipresent – not just in roofing, but in the walls of make-shift dwellings. Many people have yet to re-build their houses, and face a third monsoon of cramped and damp conditions.
