Kathmandu, November 29

The fourth workshop of the Asia Shelter Forum is being organized here from 12:30 pm today.

The virtual workshop is being organized in aegis of the National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) and the Department of Urban Development and Building Construction (DUDBC).

The workshop is being organized to share experiences on post-disaster recovery and reconstruction in the Asia region.

NRA Chief Executive Officer Sushil Gyewali is set to inaugurate the workshop to be chaired by Dr. Ramesh Prasad Singh, Secretary at the Ministry of Urban Development.

The third such workshop of the Forum held last year in Indonesia had decided to hold the fourth one in Nepal. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the workshop is being organized virtually this time.

If the situation improves, the in-person weekly program will be held in Kathmandu in March 2021.

During the workshop, the experts and various stakeholders will share experiences in their respective countries on the post-disaster recovery and reconstruction and discuss ways to collaborate in case of disasters in the region in the future.

This Forum is a platform for the practitioners working in the post-disaster housing reconstruction from all over the Asia Pacific region to come together and share their experiences and enhance their knowledge on the issue.

The Forum is also a networking opportunity for people working in the disaster recovery and reconstruction to inform them about solutions to solve problems and provide necessary technical assistance.

This Forum workshop is being supported in close coordination of Housing Recovery and Reconstruction Platform (HRRP), Catholic Relief Services (CRS), International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the European Union (EU), International Organization for Migration (IOM), Habitat for Humanity and the NGO Federation.
