Two years after the devastating earthquakes in Nepal in April and May 2015, a partnership comprising Coventry University, ActionAid Nepal (AAN) and HelpAge Nepal (HAN) undertook an action research project to investigate the initial implementation of Community-Led Reconstruction (CLR). This approach seeks to increase inclusion and accountability to disaster-affected communities to ensure marginalised groups are included. The overall aim of this research is to provide learning and evidence on implementing CLR and thereby improve performance and enhance accountability to disaster-affected people. The primary research question was as follows:

To what extent and in what ways can CLR in post-earthquake Nepal lead to greater inclusion of marginalised groups and improved accountability to beneficiaries?
