PDF File Size: 359 KB | Download   
For the first time ever in Nepal, an exclusive training for female masons on earthquake resilient construction techniques was organised from 10 to 14 September 2012 in Kathmandu. Masons are a crucial aspect for ensuring compliance with building codes and reducing vulnerability to earthquakes. In an industry traditionally dominated by men, this innovative training programme became the first to focus and build capacity of women and recognises their contribution to safe construction in Nepal.
