2016 Sendai Symposium for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Future

In person
Sendai International Center Conference Building, Sendai City Museum

The City of Sendai organizes this Symposium to commemorate one year since the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (WCDRR) was held in Sendai. We plan to gather local citizens, municipal government officers, research institution members and others who have engaged in the reconstruction and disaster risk reduction efforts in the Sendai and Tohoku area.

The purpose of this Symposium is to think and share ideas about what we can do to accelerate disaster risk reduction in the future in Sendai and Tohoku; we hope to accomplish this through a set of presentations on different topics, discussing and sharing the direction and challenges on their future activities in accordance with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. The Sendai Framework is the international guideline for disaster risk reduction that was adopted at the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai.
