Newly built toilet Suji, Manoj


The building and use of toilets have been encouraged to counter the ills of outdoor defecation. The post 2015 earthquake reconstruction programme has forced many people to build toilets for the first time to access the housing grants, which have certain construction requirements that must be met in order to receive the grant. 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’.
