Damaged house still in use Subedi, Prakash


After the initial aftershocks of the 2015 earthquake lessened, many people went back to their still-standing houses, making necessary repairs. The owners of this house seemed to have put corrugated iron sheets in the front to replace a wall. Additionally, precarious temporary space has been created on the roof by use of the iron sheets without any rigid structures to hold them down. 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’.
