Nepal Earthquake: Number of People in Need (as of 22 May)
PDF File Size: 263 KB | Download   
Source: http://www.humanitarianresponse.info/en/operations/nepal/document/people-need-calculations Because of the specific nature of the impact of the earthquake, the condition of houses is considered to be the most relevant proxy indicator for people in need. Whilst it is acknowledged that using shelter as the key indicator is not completely inclusive of all possible groups in need (e.g. children not in school, people with changed access to health care) there is a strong correlation between shelter conditions and other needs including the potential loss of food or seed stocks; damage of WASH facilities, and exposure to increased protection risks. The GoN damaged buildings dataset is used. In addition to this being the figures accepted by the GoN, there is also a lack of other conclusive and complete datasets. The use of a single proxy limits over-estimation by eliminating the possibility of re-counting individuals with a number of different needs. This dataset is currently only complete at the district level and therefore no disaggregation is possible between different VDCs within a district. However, the secondary datasets used to calculate subsets are already available at the VDC level, and thus a more disaggregated analysis can be conducted once suitable data on damaged buildings at VDC-level is available. A distinction needs to be made between people in need and people affected. Specifically, people in need are considered as those who require assistance to be able to rebuild their lives. Only the 14 most affected districts as designated by the GoN have been included in the following values (although the figures can be expanded to include other districts as required).
