Kathmandu, October 24
The National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) is going to organize an international conference in Kathmandu next year to exchange the knowledge, learning and achievements of the post-earthquake reconstruction and rehabilitation.
At an event organized in the course of preparation of the conference, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the NRA Sushil Gyewali informed that the conference will be organized to institutionalize the knowledge and achievements acquired on the multi-dimensional aspects of the reconstruction, and to share the knowledge at the international level.
At the function, Executive Committee Member of the NRA Dr. Chandra Bahadur Shrestha informed about the tentative research topics to be presented at the conference. The NRA has said it would call for the research papers to be presented in the conference and begin the selection process.
The participants of the function advised not to focus solely on the academic aspect of the various dimensions of reconstruction and rehabilitation, but also pay attention to the practical aspects. Although the plan is to organize the conference in November 2020, the exact dates will be finalized after some time.
