Welcome to the thirty-first issue of OPEN MIC NEPAL bulletin. The Open Mic project captures rumours and perceptions on the ground to eliminate information gaps between the media, humanitarian agencies and local people. By providing local media and outreach workers with facts, Open Mic aims to create a better understanding of the needs of the earthquake-affected communities and to debunk rumours before they can do any harm.

This week's issue contains:

  • Questions about the opportunities for mason training

  • Questions about the deadline of the reconstruction programme

  • Questions about the methods of assessment in the current CBS survey

  • Questions about earthquake-resistant building technology

  • Questions about the availability of the catalogue of rural house designs
