International conference on reconstruction in December

The National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) is going to organise an international conference on reconstruction in Kathmandu on December 7-9.

The authority has successfully completed most of the reconstruction and rehabilitation work of the damage caused by the devastating earthquake on April 25, 2015, and the subsequent aftershocks, informed the chief executive of the authority Sushil Gyawali.

The authority has handed over the remaining responsibility to the concerned body. The experience and learning of the post-earthquake reconstruction and rehabilitation work has laid the groundwork for fulfilling the national goal of making Nepal safe from disasters, he claimed, adding that an international conference on reconstruction will help Nepal share the experience and learning in post-earthquake reconstruction and rehabilitation.

With the slogan 'From Reconstruction to Upliftment', the conference will include research-based presentations on various aspects of private housing reconstruction, cultural heritage reconstruction, public infrastructure reconstruction, livelihood and economic rehabilitation, and good governance, as well as thematic seminars.

According to the authority's executive committee member and International Conference organising committee coordinator Dr Chandra Bahadur Shrestha, local and foreign guests, experts and representatives of various organisations have been invited to participate in the conference.

Requesting to register online to participate in the conference, he also informed that a website of international conference has also been launched.
