The Kathmandu Valley Urban History Project (KVUHP) is a research and public knowledge initiative that works towards understanding, documenting and telling stories about the ways that the Kathmandu Valley is experiencing change. Through place-based research, archiving, and storytelling, the project seeks to contribute to the public discourse on urbanization, the commons, and imaginations for the future.

The project was initiated in March 2020, with a cohort of seven fellows including researchers, storytellers, artists, and activists, who were advised by urban geographer Sabin Ninglekhu, and environmental historian Tom Robertson.

This publication brings together the works produced by the research fellows, and gives us a glimpse of the conversation that took place during the discussion seminars. It does not encompass all the valley’s urban issues, but hopefully prompts us to think about this city with more care and creativity.
