The question on all our minds – How have the recent earthquakes in Nepal affected the Deboche Buddhist Nunnery project and the Everest Biogas project?
Despite the recent earthquakes, these projects continue to move forward. Our partners on the ground in Nepal, Dan Mazur and Mingma Sherpa, are focusing their efforts on rebuilding the Deboche Buddhist Nunnery that was heavily damaged.
On an international scale, our peer organization Architecture San Frontieres United Kingdom (ASF), is partnering with Architecture & Developpement (A&D) in Paris to coordinate design efforts there. If you are planning to work in the region or would like to contribute in any form to the creation of a network of built environment organisations and practitioners providing technical support to assess needs and resources and help plan the long-term rebuilding process, please contact A&D at ASF-response-Nepal@archidev.org.
