ENGINEERING: DISASTER RISK REDUCTION

According to the United Nations, losses caused by disasters constitute a serious obstacle to the social and economic development of the nations affected by severe natural phenomena. Technical scientific studies were carried out following the major disasters occurring in the Indian Ocean in 2004; Maule, Chile in 2010; and Tohoku, Japan in 2011, which have led to the development of modern methods to reduce disaster risks. We must be aware of such methods, promote their implementation, and continue researching in an innovative way. In the 2016 WECDRR, leading researchers will have the opportunity to present their contributions to the latest global developments which, when implemented by engineers, will help to significantly reduce the damages caused by severe natural phenomena.

The World Engineering Conference shall be a platform for open dialogue to build bridges between academia, government, industry, companies, financial entities and the civil society.
