Inter-Agency Common Feedback Project: Nepal Earthquake 2015
PDF File Size: 1.05 MB | Download   
From the period of July and August 2015, the Inter Agency Common Feedback Project (CFP), working under the Communicating with Communities Working Group, coordinated an information and communication needs assessment. As a result, a total of 222 key informant surveys across 10 earthquake affected districts were completed. These key informants represent a variety of social groups. Key findings from this assessment include:
1. A total 69 percent of respondents had been displaced from their homes and were staying in a temporary shelter or designated camps. This may have an impact on how information is received.
2. While local language remains critical for effective communications, more than 80 percent of respondents do regularly communicate in Nepali.
3. An overwhelming majority of respondents use and prefer to use radio and television to receive information. Mobile phones is also an identified key source of information. While these sources are important for respondents, access remains a challenge with respondents citing lack of electricity as the main barrier to information. Despite this, a majority (94 percent) of respondents do have regular access to radio with fewer (72 percent) able to regularly access television.
4. Mobile phones are primarily used to send and receive calls. In addition, nearly 50 percent of respondents also use mobile phones to listen to radio or receive information/alerts.
5. While internet access is limited, those who do access internet primarily do so through mobile phones (60 percent).
6. A majority of respondents (87 percent) can recall receiving information related to earthquakes. However, action taken on information received is unclear and requires additional investigation.
