This report captures the Emergency Market Mapping and Analysis (EMMA) exercise carried out by Christian Aid and partners- CASA, ATI, Practical Action Consulting and International Rescue Committee during 18 to 25 July 2013 across 2 districts- Uttarakashi and Rudraprayag in Uttarakhand. Christian Aid following its initial rapid assessment that shaped its immediate response soon after the floods in the state of Uttarakhand, realized the need for looking into the markets as a critical actor with a view to inform its recovery initiatives in the state.
CARE India led a Joint Shelter Assessment to understand the situation and needs of women, men,
boys and girls around shelter in the post flood scenario in Uttarakhand. The members of the Joint
Shelter Assessment were SEEDS, Christian Aid, Appropriate Technology – India (ATI), CASA,
Emmanuel Hospitals Association, Sphere India and RED R. This shelter assessment was undertaken in
the five worst affected districts of Rudraprayag, Chamoli, Pithoragarh, Terhi Garhwal and Uttrakashi.
Information on the extent of damages around shelters was collected through Focus Group
Discussions (FGDs), Survey Questionnaire and Key Informant Interviews (KIIs). While the FGDs, KIIs
and Survey questionnaire focused on different aspects pertaining to shelter, information on WASH
was also collected as part of the assessment. During this survey, a total of 412 households across 73
villages in 5 districts were surveyed.
