MetadataShow full item record
This mixed-method study examined the disaster recovery process with the help of a sample survey on 744 disaster-affected households, over 36 in-depth interviews, two focus group discussions, and several informal conversations to identify the factors impacting recovery. The study concludes that community resilience and factors, such as caste hierarchy system, household economy, receipt of house grants, the trust held towards the government, and geographical vulnerability played a vital role in the recovery after a disaster in Nepal.
