6th International Conference on Climate and Disaster Risks Management 2017

Science holds the key to building resilience for sustainable future. An integrated science-based awareness raising, development planning, policy-making and practices strengthen government and institutional efforts for climate change adaptation and disaster management. It also strengthens the capacities of individuals, communities and societies in understanding hazards, in managing associated risks, and in preparing for potential disasters and extreme events. We look to science to seek answers to our questions about the changing climate and the changing world. This encourages collaborative and urgent investments in climate actions and disaster forums on global and local levels that are necessary to promote the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, and the achievement of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

On its sixth year, the conference further enhances the common learning ground for climate change talk and disaster dialogue among and between a diverse body of disciplines, backgrounds and expertise. It is a continuing opportunity to actively engage scientists, researchers, and technical people who provide up-to-date scientific data and study findings on climate change and disasters which can be used by the various stakeholders/sectors for an informed hazard and/or risk-based planning and decision-making processes, and management practices.
