Community information centre Subedi, Prakash


Community information centres have been set up after the 2015 earthquake to disseminate information on reconstruction guidelines as part of efforts to facilitate the process of getting compensation and loans for rebuilding houses. A big focus has been on following building codes to make the houses earthquake resistant. Taken during the 2nd 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’.
