This report is based on a series of 23 focus group discussions held by the Common Feedback Project team in Gorkha, Dhading, Nuwakot, Rasuwa, Sindhupalchok, Dolakha and Ramechhap. This special Focus Group Discussion Report was undertaken in order to provide greater detail and insight into issues faced by affected communities. The report highlights, among others:
Critical issues faced by single, divorced or widowed women, as well as women whose husbands are abroad or engaged in multiple marriages in access reconstruction support;
Almost all districts across the Far West face losses of lives and property every year due to natural disasters. However, the impact can last well beyond the immediate event. Humanitarian actors have observed that the duration of displacement varies depending on the intensity and type of disaster: displacement following inundation of rivers is generally short term, while displacement resulting from floods and erosion is generally longer term.
