Key Findings in July

Across 14 districts and 2100 respondents, 35 percent felt they faced constraints to their livelihood recovery. This is an impressive 19 percentage point improvement over the previous round in March 2017 when 57 percent felt they faced constraints to livelihood recovery. As in previous rounds, a large number of respondents (51 percent) who face livelihood recovery constraints plan to take loans to cope with their current loss of livelihood. This coping strategy has actually increased over the past round, when 46 percent reported plans to take loans. This triangulates concerns raised in the reconstruction portion of this report over the long term economic impacts of unfavourable loan conditions.
