Methodology: 

Between 27 April and 5 May, within 48 hours of a magnitude 7.8 earthquake hitting Nepal, WVI Nepal staff were deployed to assess the general condition of a number of affected districts. The methodology employed for the assessment was a mix of interviews and direct observation, which is verified with secondary information from government and UN reports. A total of 44 interviews were conducted with community members and government representatives across the seven districts. The purpose of this light touch assessment is to provide an overview of the needs and gaps in the selected districts. A total of seven (7) districts have been covered;three (3) valley districts (Kathmandu, Lalitpur, Bakthapur) and four (4) hill districts (Sindhuli, Lamjung, Gorkha, Sindhupolchowk).
