Key Findings in August

Ninety-seven percent of respondents say that damage from the earthquake has impacted their livelihood to some extent. Among the 58 percent who said their livelihood was completely or somewhat impacted, 76 percent report beginning to recover from these losses.
As in the May 2018 survey round, we see that water supply is the one form of livelihood damage that no communities report even beginning to recover from. This indicates that the slight decrease in concerns over water supply seen in the question about community reconstruction priorities is likely due only to the monsoon, and that continued concerted effort in water supply recovery is greatly needed in affected communities.
