Read the Report

This is the first report of an on-going series of field-level qualitative assessments Internews is conducting in Nepal after the April 2015 earthquake to determine the communication needs of Nepalese citizens.

This assessment, conducted in Betrawati, Nuwakot, is a snapshot of a very complex and chaotic situation on the ground and not necessarily representative on its own.

Focus group discussions and community interviews were conducted on May 10 in Betrawati camp, Nuwakot. Participants/key informants were mainly women between 19 and 61 years old and three male male key informants (40 years, 43 years, 64 years).
