Bamboo for sustainable post-disaster reconstruction in Nepal

The aim of this project is to support the Nepalese private sector by working with disaster-affected communities to develop bamboo resources and supply chains to contribute towards post-disaster, earthquake-resistant reconstruction, renewed local livelihoods, and mountainous area restoration. The initiation of this project took place as a respond to the enormous demand for rebuilding materials following the devastating earthquake that affected over 8 million people.

It provides technical assistance and capacity building to existing commercial companies to produce bamboo construction products by up-scaling their supply- chains and pre-fabricated bamboo building designs for housing and public structures, such as schools. Thereby, the project creates a vertical linkages to rural stallholder farmers in disaster affected regions who will become end-user beneficiaries of pre-fabricated bamboo houses and public structures.
