Kathmandu, Nepal - Project Context

Traction | Nepal

Traction | Nepal focuses on the human centered design, development, and dissemination of distributed technologies and infrastructure that spur economic development and improve environmental and human health in the Kathmandu Valley. We pursue design, education, and research that empower residents, students, activists, and entrepreneurs to effect meaningful change at a local level. Recent projects include public space interventions Kolcha Pahka Park and Park Pods in Kathmandu’s Hyumat neighborhood. Projects under development focus on strengthening the maker movement in Nepal and innovative, community-based solutions to Kathmandu’s air pollution crisis. We work in close partnership with local communities, NGOs, and universities.
