As part of its efforts to construct earthquake-resistant buildings, the Ministry of Urban Development has deployed 1,040 engineers in the 14 affected districts.
Official said the National Reconstruction Authority (NRA) still requires an additional 3,000 engineers for reconstruction works, which have yet to start a year after the quakes devastated central Nepal, killing nearly 9,000 people.
Unveiling a five-year post-disaster recovery framework on Thursday, NRA Chief Executive Officer Sushil Gyewali said 4,000 engineers would be required to reconstruct the damaged houses. Each Village Development Committee would have two engineers and at least four technical representatives.
