Worker trimming reinforced steel rods Subedi, Prakash


The use of reinforced concrete in rebuilding of houses has been promoted in urban areas where materials such as cement, steel rods, and sand are easily available and transported. This has created higher demands for such materials as well as skilled labour to work on these materials. 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’.
