Partially damaged house repaired Suji, Manoj


Usually houses in rural areas were not retrofitted after the 2015 earthquake, but this partially damaged house seems to have been repaired without following any of the government recommended earthquake resistant designs such as horizontal bands. 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’.
