The National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) is planning to host an international conference on Nepal’s post-earthquake reconstruction in Kathmandu. The three-day conference is due to take place from December 7 to December 9.

The authority says it aims to share its experiences, learning and challenges it faced during the reconstruction drive that took place throughout Nepal following the 2015 earthquake.

Speaking at an event held on Friday, the authority’s CEO Sushil Gyewali said the conference would be filled with experience sharing.

He said the country would talk about heritage reconstruction, residential house reconstruction and infrastructural reconstruction. Separate topics would have separate seminars, said Gyewali, as the authority would want a nuanced discussion on different topics.

The conference coordinator Chandra Bahadur Shrestha said invitations had been sent to experts of the field from both Nepal and abroad and that a website had been established to make things easy.

Those interested in the conference can register their names to be part of it.
