Abstract

After the 2015 earthquake that destroyed much of Nepal, the services we Americans expect our government to provide are weaker than ever in this small Asian country. Access to quality healthcare, sustainable energy, safety in the workplace, and an effective forestry system are luxuries the Nepali have had to live without. After conducting qualitative research in the town of Tansen, Nepal this panel discussion looks to make known the standards of living the Nepali are humbly grateful for that Americans frequently take for granted. The four panelists will be sharing their research and life changing experiences in Nepal to present possible improvements, and potential barriers to Nepali systems using knowledge and experiences from growing up in the United States. Ultimately this panel looks to raise awareness of one of the poorest yet most resilient countries in the world.
