On April 25 2015, a deadly 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Nepal. The death toll was confirmed as over 8000 and caused massive displacement. The international aid community responded immediately but the inaccessibility of rural mountain areas made aid hard to reach. As early recovery moves to long term rebuilding and rehabilitation, an Inter-Agency Common Feedback Project was set up and this report captures the views of affected communities after a joint communication needs assessment. The report highlights that TV and Radio as well as mobile phone calls remain the top ways to receive information. Majority of those surveyed highlighted that lack of electricity and access to charging devices prevents usage of these mediums.
