The ‘2nd International Symposium on Disaster Resilience and Sustainable Development‘ will be held from 24-25 June, 2021 at the Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand (in-person and virtual). Organised by the Asian Institute of Technology, the event will bring together discussion on various dimensions of higher education systems in the Asia-Pacific region with a focus on Disaster Risk Reduction and Sustainable Development. The International Symposium will focus on various dimensions of existing and future risk scenarios and concerted efforts of the scientific communities to find new adaptation methods.
Delivered in hybrid mode, the program will include keynote speeches, panel discussions, technical sessions, poster presentations, and academic exhibitions. The Symposium is one of the initiatives of the ProSPER.Net project ‘Disaster Education for Integrating SFDRR and SDG in Asia‘ led by the Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand along with partner universities in the Asia-Pacific Region.
The symposium will also provide an opportunity to develop a Higher Educational Institution Platform on DRR to address the cross-cutting issues on Disaster Resilience and Sustainable Development and also understanding regional challenges that result from complex problems generated by natural hazards and human-induced threats.
