Samenvatting

Nepal was hit by an earthquake of 7.9-magnitude on the 25t h of April 2015 (Ter
Voorde, 2015). More than 7500 people lost their lives, around 16.000 people were
injured, 285.000 houses were destroyed and another 234.000 were damaged
(OCHA, 2015). The epicentre of the earthquake was very near to Gorkha district
were the impact was huge. The earthquake could be felt until Okhaldhunga district,
the impact of the earthquake brought less damage but still enough that houses were
destroyed (HRRP, 2016).
Earlier research has shown that people often do not adopt knowledge provided by
NGOs the government or another institution (The World Bank, 2016). By finding the
factors that influence the adoption of knowledge, the way knowledge is provided can
be improved. By improving the way knowledge is provided people could be enabled
to build back hazard resistant houses.
This research focuses on measuring the factors that influence the adoption of
knowledge in post-disaster reconstruction in Nepal using a household survey. The
questionnaire is research is based on the MAO model, model for motivation, ability
and opportunity (Stokmans, 2005). This report contains the establishment of the
questionnaire, the measurement of MAO and the results from the research. The
barriers and drives are found by measuring the level of motivation, ability and
opportunity. The results give barriers and drivers for the adoption of knowledge.
This research has taken place in two districts, Gorkha and Okhaldhunga. The
districts Gorkha and Okhaldhunga were selected out of the 14 affected districts.
Gorkha district has received a lot of technical assistance and Okhaldhunga has
received little to no technical assistance. One of the goals of this research is to find
the differences between the two districts, when it comes to building back earthquake
resistant housing.
