To mark the first year anniversary of the devastating earthquake in Nepal, the Nepal Ireland Alliance is hosting “Nepal Conference: Post Earthquake – Current Status and Challenges Ahead” on Saturday 30th April. The event will take place from 10am to 3pm in the Demonstration Theatre, Simon Perry Building, Trinity College Dublin.
The conference has been organised by the Nepal Ireland Society, the Nepal Embassy London, ActionAid and Engineers Without Borders – Ireland who are all members of the Alliance.
The conference is open to the public and will be very useful for anyone interested in visiting Nepal after the earthquake, with information and advice provided on the day. There will be a focus on post-earthquake recovery projects, including project collaboration and peer networking. The aim of the conference is to create a platform for interaction, networking and information sharing for all International Non-Governmental Organisations and individuals based in Ireland who have been working in Nepal or have an interest in Nepal.
Diplomatic relations between Ireland and Nepal were established in 1999. In the absence of a Nepalese Embassy in Ireland, Nepal Ireland Society has been organizing various programmes in collaboration with the Nepal Embassy in London to strengthen relations between Nepal and Ireland. The conference aims to strengthen this relationship and will become an annual event.
