The Gorkha Earthquake in Nepal occurred on 25 April 2015 and had a magnitude of 7.6. Its epicentre was about 76km northwest of the capital Kathmandu. Around 9,000 people were killed, and over 100,000 people were injured.
In this paper, the authors assess tangible and intangible disaster recovery dynamics following the 2015 Nepal earthquakes and aftershocks in order to understand household adaptive capacity and transformation. They randomly selected 400 households in four communities across two highly impacted districts for surveys and interviews at 9 months and 1.5 years afterwards and returned at 2.5 years to share and discuss results.

This paper analyses the role of social capital in disaster resilience in remote communities after the 2015 Nepal earthquake. Social capital is widely regarded as a key element in recovery from and resilience to disasters. Yet, little attention has been paid to the specificities of what supports or undermines remote rural communities' social capital in disasters. The paper examines how bonding, bridging, and linking social capital operated after the 2015 earthquake in three remote Nepali communities of Sindhupalchok and Gorkha Districts, which have varying degrees of access to infrastructure, relief and recovery programmes.

This study illustrates the tangible and intangible dynamics of short- term household and settlement recoveries through three interconnected multi-faceted thematic sections that build on one another to contextualize short-term recovery dynamics: 1) inequality; 2) hazards, livelihood, and displacement; and 3) place, uncertainty, and mental well-being.
