Damaged shop still in use Suji, Manoj


Many of the damaged houses and buildings have not been rebuilt yet after the 2015 earthquake for want of funds, as well as for the disruption and loss that it would entail of business or living spaces during the reconstruction phase. This shopkeeper would lose their income if they were to start reconstructing their shop. 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’.
