Founded in 1980, Nepal Geological Society (NGS) is a professional geoscientific organization with over 800 members and nearly one third of them are international scientists. The Society is the National Group Member of International Association of Engineering Geology and the Environment (IAEG) and was member of Nepal National Committee on International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction (IDNDR) to led the IDNDR activities in Nepal for a decade. The Society was honored with: the 1998 United Nations Sasakawa Disaster Prevention Award Certificate of Merit in appreciation for its contribution to disaster prevention, mitigation and preparedness and Science and Technology Promotion Award from Nepal Academy of Science and Technology (NAST) in recognition of its contribution in the research and promotion of Geoscience.
Since its establishment, NGS is providing platforms for scientists from all the continents to present research findings and exchange professional experiences and views on various aspects of geoscience. It has successfully organized seven congresses and a number of regional and international symposiums, conferences and workshops in the past, including the IAEG international symposium on ‘Engineering Geology, Hydrogeology and Natural Disaster’ in 1999 and the Fifth Asian Regional Conference on ‘Engineering Geology for Major Infrastructure Development and Natural Hazards Mitigation’ in 2005. All these scientific events have provided NGS a foundation for building effective geoscientific cooperation among the geoscientists of the Himalaya, Tibet and Karakoram regions and other parts of the world.
As part of its scientific activities this year, NGS is going to organize the 11th Asian Regional Conference (ARC-11) of IAEG from November 28-30, 2017 to exchange expertise, experiences and knowledge for building effective cooperation among the geoscientists of all over the world.
NGS believes that after the 2015-Gorkha Earthquake, Himalaya needs a total revisit of engineering geology for geodisaster management. Thus NGS is planning to conduct this ARC-11 in the theme of "Engineering Geology for Geodisaster Management".
