Following the workshop and conference events, partnership members from Canada, Denmark, and Nepal visited two of the research field sites: Bhaktapur municipality in the Kathmandu Valley, and Kartike in Sindhupalchowk district. The communities in both regions experienced devastating impacts from the 2015 earthquakes and continue to confront hazards such as, landslides, flooding, unstable road conditions, and uneven access to labour and capital. Partnership members had the opportunity to learn about reconstruction experiences in both locales, and develop a better understanding of how large-scale disasters play a role in the way diverse individuals and communities engage with the Nepali state, develop relationships with local and foreign I/NGOs, and reconstruct their social and cultural practices.
