After a first session dedicated to underground space use in 2018, the 2019 seminar aimed to go further in the tunnelling process by presenting the major issues related to the design and construction aspects. It helped the clients to understand how to manage underground projects and set up a suitable organisation. Approximately 80 participants attended, from various companies but all with a great enthusiasm to learn more.

Nepal is a nation of over 27 million people. Despite its numerous river valleys, over recent decades several regions of the country have been faced with water shortages. Long, dry winters, coupled with water infrastructure that is inadapted to the needs of an ever-increasing urban population have led to a severe lack of water in some areas.
At the request of Athi Water, (established under the Ministry of Water and Sanitation of Kenya), the ITACET Foundation organized a one-day training session on the topic of Underground Space Use and Tunnel Project Management, held in Nairobi on the 7th December 2018.
