Strategic plan for brick industries discussed

26 May, Kathmandu – Emphasis has been laid on policy-level management by giving priority to energy efficiency, use of environment-friendly technology and fulfillment of social responsibilities for transformation of brick industry.
Stakeholders expressed this view in a discussions programme on the draft of National Strategic Policy on Brick Industry in Nepal. The draft was prepared by a study team formed to operate the brick industry in a systematic way at a time when the government is going to make proper land planning for the industrial sector.
The draft prepared by the team formed under coordination of former Secretary, Krishna Gyawali, with the support of International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) stresses on the use of different alternative energy technologies against coal used in brick industries.
The study has also given priority to build reliable mechanism for monitoring and evaluation of significance of social security including quality determination and classification of bricks, child labour, occupational safety and health and remuneration.
There are about 1,000 brick kilns in operation in the country and most of them are operated in a traditional way with weak occupational safety and health standard. They are blamed for causing environment pollution.
At a seminar organised here today to discuss on the draft, Director General of the Cottage and Small Industries, Shatrudhan Pudasaini, Director General of ICIMOD, David Molden, President of Federation of Nepal Brick Industries, Mahendra Bahadur Chitrakar, among others shed light on technologies and policy-level reforms in brick industries.
