Visitors at SCP booth

Positive visitor reactions were seen at the SCP stand which had practical demonstrations of building materials and technology. All the visitors were keen to learn more about this sustainable technology.  Most of them said they had not heard of the demonstrated technology before, and they appreciated the technology as very suitable for Nepal, its climate and economic condition.
