One-room house next to an old house Suji, Manoj


Lack of proper information on government-approved designs and grants following the 2015 earthquake has led many to construct one-room houses as they are considered more earthquake resistant, but which do not meet the needs of the family or have much practical use. 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’.
