Construction materials on the side of the road Limbu, Bina

Description

Reinforced concrete structures were better able to withstand the earthquake tremors of 2015 and many of them survived. This has prompted many people in rural areas to utilize these expensive, difficult-to-procure, and difficult-to-transport materials for the reconstruction of their houses. 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’.
