Fourth meeting of the Federation of Asian Brick Kiln Associations (FABKA)


The Federation of Asian Brick Kiln Associations (FABKA), which encompasses Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and Pakistan, was established following an exposure visit and knowledge exchange programme for stakeholders in early 2018. FABKA aims to promote the exchange of knowledge, technologies, and good practices; enhance cooperation; engage in policy advocacy; and foster collaboration with related stakeholders in the South Asian region. 

The fourth FABKA meeting – being organized by ICIMOD – will follow up on the previous meeting held in Bangkok, where FABKA’s constitution was ratified by brick kiln presidents of member countries. The upcoming meeting aims to discuss the progress of registering FABKA with the appropriate governing body in Nepal and inaugurate the FABKA Secretariat in Kathmandu. The meeting also intends to discuss and finalize the draft roadmap for FABKA. FABKA’s future as an independent legal entity will be a key focus of the meeting.
