Verandah in a new house Suji, Manoj


Agricultural people in rural Nepal need a large amount of space for the storage of food, fodder, and other essentials. This need has not been taken into account in the government-approved house designs disseminated after the 2015 earthquake. In this photo, the family has added a verandah where harvested millets in doko (traditional bamboo baskets) are kept to help address their storage needs. Taken during the 2nd 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’.
