In 2015, two powerful earthquakes hit Nepal, killing almost 9,000 people and displacing hundreds of thousands more. Since then, The Asia Foundation has been tracking how those affected by the earthquakes have recovered. Four rounds of research, conducted at roughly six-month intervals, have provided snap shots of conditions on the ground, including the challenges people face, the aid they are receiving and the extent to which they are coping.

This report presents findings from the fourth round of research, which involved qualitative fieldwork and a quantitative household survey in April 2017. Because the same wards are visited in each round, with the same people interviewed, the report gives an accurate picture of how things have changed as time has passed.
