Aggregate lying by the roadside to be transported Limbu, Bina

Description

The use of reinforced concrete for house construction in rural areas has increased during post-earthquake reconstruction. As many of these affected settlements are located in high hills away from markets, where cement and iron rods are procured, and riverbeds, from where sand and stones are mined, transporting these materials has become a challenge to these places. Taken during the 1st phase of fieldwork conducted by the research team based at Social Science Baha in Kathmandu, Nepal, as part of the SSHRC Partnership Development Grant, ‘Expertise, Labour and Mobility in Nepal’s Post-Conflict, Post-Disaster Reconstruction’.
