Welcome 13th APRU Multi-H Symposium 2017!

Innovative Association of Academia and Governance for Disaster Risk Reduction

The 13th Multi-Hazards Symposium 2017, held at Peking University on 28th and 29th August, will concentrate on how to combine governance and state-of-the-art science and technology for more efficient disaster risk reduction. The Pacific Rim is never short of earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, landslides, volcanic eruptions and bush fires, and the historic disaster events indicated that government could and should play a more important role in coping with these natural hazards. Association of academia with governance on public education, infrastructure construction, disaster management, emergency rescue and hazard recovery will be the next “hot” point in the field of disaster risk reduction.
