Nepal, Gorkha earthquake: Urban housing reconstruction status paper
This status paper has been prepared by HRRP with the objective of providing a snapshot of progress in urban reconstruction to date, the challenges and opportunities in urban reconstruction, and some suggestions for next steps in Nepal.
The document introduces the context, provides photographs of common housing typologies found in urban areas, shares examples of reconstruction issues in urban parts of earthquake affected districts, and provides information about initiatives to address some of these issues. One area that this paper does not cover is renters in urban sectors due to a lack of information on this topic.
