Shelter & NFIs


For 75% of the sites, the most common type of shelter was temporary shelters using corrugated iron roofing sheets (CGIs), a marked increase from 55% in the last assessment. Most households of 16% sites were living in makeshift/tarpaulin shelters, while tents were most common in 8% of the sites (predominantly in Bhaktapur, Dhading and Gorkha).

Shelter

What is the most common type of shelter?

In many cases, the lack of upgrade into temporary shelter indicated restrictions placed on the households by land owners rather than signifying lack of resources.

What percentage of households on sites have access to safe cooking facilities?

There was no access to safe cooking facilities in 25% of sites and only in 17% of the sites had more than 75% of the households with access to safe cooking facilities. This was partly due to the worsening weather which was driving many households to cook inside their tents and make shift shelters.

In 43% of the sites assessed, there was no access to electricity. In 44% of the sites, more than 75% of the households had access to electricity, compared to 29% in Round 5. There was generally more access to electricity for people living in displacement sites when compared to Round 5.

CGIs, cooking gas/fire wood, and tools remained the first, second and third priority needs for NFIs. In 82 sites assessed, 51% people needed CGIs and 42% for cooking gas/fire wood whereas 17% were for tools. It reflects the continuing basic lifesaving and shelter needs that were likely exacerbated by insufficient supply throughout the affected districts specifically during the winter season.

 

Though the increased number of temporary shelters made with CGIs in displacement sites (from 55% to 76% when compared to Round 5) had likely contributed to the satisfied shelter conditions yet there was still need of CGIs for better shelter conditions before the upcoming monsoon season. The table below shows the first, second and third priority needs for NFIs
