Abstract (in English)

Two recent earthquakes, the 2015 Gorkha Earthquake in Nepal and the 2016 Chauk Earthquake in Myanmar, had devastating effect on cultural heritage. In Nepal some 853 monuments collapsed or were damaged while in Bagan 389 monuments were registered as having been affected. The question that arises is how to ensure sustainability in the rehabilitation process for the culture sector in an earthquake prone area. The paper focuses on showing how important community involvement is in maintaining monuments and ensuring appropriate interventions.
