Long-term impact of Wenchuan Earthquake and natural disaster in China

CASTED and Fafo jointly conduct a survey to study living conditions, perceptions and socio-economic development in the affected areas ten years after the Wenchuan earthquake. Together with three previous surveys CASTED and Fafo jointly conducted after Wenchuan earthquake, this project will produce scientific and politically relevant knowledge about the long-term impact of natural disaster and government post-disaster reconstruction effort and recovery interventions. The project will also produce a standardized set of policy oriented tools for rapid assessment of natural disasters at the community level.
