 Special Needs

Compared to DTM Round 5, there was a considerable decrease in total number of households living in displacement sites (from 8,207 to 5,727) while the number of individuals had also continued to decrease (from 40,706 to 26,272). This could mean that a number of households had either return to repair or rebuild their homes, or gone in search of livelihood opportunities elsewhere.

It was also noted that there had been a slight decrease in proportion of male individuals living in displacement sites - from 49% in Round 5 to 47% in Round 6. It could be due to the reason that some of male members of household had gone back for repair and reconstruction of their damaged houses or for cultivation as agriculture was one the main source of livelihood.

Sindhupalchok, Nuwakot, Dhading, and Dolakha have shown a significant decrease in the number of households living at displacement sites. This was due partly to return of people from some of large sites in Kathmandu (Chuchepati, Thali, Yellow Gumba/Namgel, Boudha, Dannchi, Gokarneshwor Park and Sherpa Camp), Bakhtapur (Maheshwori Football Ground, Bhelukhel, Suryamadi, Saraswati Vidyagriha, Bode Mulpani, Sano Byasi, Bramhayanipeeth, and Sahid Smarak Khel Maidan) and Dhading (Aalchi Danda, Lungurchet 1, Gesrang, Dungveerchet, Chapedanda and Aapswara).
