Janakiya Pankalithavum Punarnirmanavum Initiative (JPP-I)
The Accountability to Affected Populations, implemented by the State Government of Kerala as the Janakiya Pankalithavum Punarnirmanavum Initiative (JPP-I) is an effort to build Kerala into a more resilient state with the participation and feedback from people affected by the flood and landslides. JPP-I is institutionalized within Kudumbashree, the Self-Help Group network of the Local Self Government Department (LSGDs), and operationalized in collaboration with UNICEF and other development partners.

Kerala State Report: Round 1
Round 1 of the JPP-I aimed to gather information on the post-disaster needs and feedback of the affected communities, taking into account gender and diversity within the communities, with a comprehensive set of common tools and protocols rolled out across the districts impacted by floods. The Round 1 report presents quantitative findings on nine key sectors of service delivery (Health, WASH, Nutrition, Education, Child Protection, Shelter, Food Security, and Livelihood) covering almost 20,000 people in 489 most affected gram panchayats/municipalities of the 7 most affected districts. 

Kerala State Report: Round 2
Round 2 of JPP-I was designed as a mixed-methods study to gain a deeper understanding of the disaster-affected communities, by including detailed accounts of the cultural context, social environment, and individual cognitions influencing people’s decisions and actions during and in the post-disaster recovery phase. The overall objective was to understand in-depth the response and relief processes to better inform policy and program. Detailed recommendations are provided as Kerala continues to rebuild itself after the disaster and implement mitigation measures for future disaster events. 

Summary Report Round 2
The Summary Report provides a brief on the findings of Round 2 of community feedback and key recommendations as gleaned through qualitative data collection techniques.
