Thus, in the framework of this meeting, CIP shall organize the World Engineering Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction. It shall take place on December 5-6, 2016.



The purpose of the World Engineering Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction is to present and discuss recent experiences on disasters and to assess proposed solutions promoting the contribution of engineering to the disaster risk management.
