Key Findings in September

Across 2100 respondents in 14 districts, 74 percent report they are aware of how to build using safe construction practices. A significant difference is observed between men and women, with 81 percent of men and only 68 percent of women saying they are aware of how to build using safe construction practices.  

Encouragingly, a higher proportion of respondents who have already completed their homes (85 percent) and already started their reconstruction (87 percent) report being aware of how to build using safe building practices.
