Idea Call for Post-Earthquake Rehabilitation and Reconstruction

Published Date: 2015-05-08, Friday

Kathmandu University Business Incubation Center (KUBIC

) expresses grief for the national Earthquake disaster of 25 April 2015. There is no way to remunerate the lives we have lost, but we can surely prepare to restore an earthquake-damaged community to serve towards national development. KUBIC has been supporting several innovative ideas until now, and is optimistic to contribute in this difficult time by encouraging hopes from aspiring entrepreneurs. KUBIC invites business ideas to encourage the students/researchers/faculties/graduates from Kathmandu University to take up entrepreneurship as an alternative to offer service for EQ relief activities. KUBIC is inviting all ideas specific to Post-Earthquake Rehabilitation and Reconstruction work. The main objective of this idea call is to

  • Help access expertise and other resources which will expand the options for rehabilitation and normalize the community livelihood
  • Strengthen local entrepreneurship by identifying available opportunities and skills from KU

The fundamental focus of this effort is to facilitate entrepreneurship-centered, community driven rehabilitation and development processes for EQ sufferers/victims. The idea should also consider to include EQ-affected area/community as equal partners in the rehabilitation. The idea should mainly incorporate following subjects:

  1. Rehabilitation and reconstruction of urban and rural houses (land use options, urban/rural planning and design etc.)
  2. Health and sanitation
