Building Code Implementation Program in Nepal (BCIPN)

Building Code Implementation Program in Nepal (BCIPN) is tasked with enhancing earthquake resilience in urban areas, with funding from the US Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA).  

BCIPN focuses on assisting the municipal governments in Nepal in enhancing their capacities to develop and administer the building permits and control system for ensuring improved seismic performance of all new building constructions. This entails, on one hand, helping the municipalities to develop an effective mechanism for building code implementation, and on the other hand, enhancing public awareness, and technical knowledge of the residents, municipal officials, and technical professionals on aspects of earthquake risk management including earthquake-resistant design and construction.
