Temporary shelter still in use after two years Suji, Manoj


The post 2015 earthquake reconstruction programme has not reached the most needy who have not been able to access the house grants for a variety reasons. Some of those reasons might include the lack of a land ownership certificate, one of the requirements for receiving grants, or having been missed in the damage survey or documentation by the government. This has been compounded by the poverty of these families, which made many of them landless in the first place. 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’.
