On the initiation of National Planning Commission and Kathmandu Living Lab in support of DFID’s Evidence for Development Programme, ‘2015 NEPAL EARTHQUAKE: OPEN DATA PORTAL’ has been launched to open the data, collected by the Government through a massive household survey using mobile technology to assess building damage in the earthquake-affected districts, to the public. The survey was conducted contacting nearly 3.7 million people of 11 most affected districts. The survey was conducted to identify beneficiaries eligible for government assistance for housing reconstruction.

The 385,657 beneficiaries getting the first tranche last year missed the deadline to start rebuilding their houses for several reasons, such as manpower shortage, insufficient grant amount, expensive construction materials, dilemma regarding the design of house, uninhabitable land plots, difficulties related to relocation, and inefficient government monitoring and migration of quake survivors to urban areas, according to field observers. Another major reason for the delay was the local, provincial and parliamentary elections, they added.
