Design and Supervision Training on Community Based Infrastructure Considering Earthquake and Other Multi-Hazards – Care Nepal

 

Introduction

CARE Nepal and Centre of Resilient Development (CoRD) jointly organized a training for CARE Nepal’s engineers, sub engineers and assistant sub-engineers of the far western region on “Design and Supervision Training on Community Based Infrastructure Considering Earthquake and Other Multi-Hazards” in Dadeldhura and Dhading.

 

Objectives

The major aim of this training was to build the capacity of the district technical team of CSP for properly designing and supervising community infrastructures considering earthquakes and other major hazards as well as adapting to risk impacts of climate change through the use of a technology that uses local materials, design and construction techniques.

Below are some broad objectives:

  • Design considerations of school, health post and other residential buildings with multi-hazard resistance (earthquake, landslide, flood, wind and snow)
  • Design considerations in drinking water supply, irrigation and trail bridge with multi-hazard resistance (earthquake, landslide, flood, wind and snow)
  • Construction techniques/instructions to mason
  • Major investigations/considerations that are required in geographical and topographical surveys
  • Retrofitting concept, vulnerability assessment and its application
  • Green technology
