ON URBAN DISASTER REDUCTION

Organized by: Institute of Social Safety Science (ISSS),
Co-organized by International Research Institute of Disaster Science (IRIDeS), Tohoku University
Organized by Institute of Social Safety Science (ISSS), Asian Conference on Urban Disaster Reduction (ACUDR) started in 2012 in order to widely exchange academic and social information on urban disaster risk reduction in Asia among related academic societies in the countries. The first ACUDR was held in Iwaki City, Fukushima, Japan, in August 2012, not only to share research outcome but also to understand recovery conditions of the city seriously affected by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, and a fruitful discussion took place among members of the Korean Society of Hazard Mitigation (KOSHAM), the Disaster Management Society of Taiwan (DMST), and ISSS based on the Trilateral Agreement of Cooperation. Since then, two ACUDRs were held in Taipei, Taiwan, in November 2014 and in Goyan, Korea, in November 2015.
With the co-organizer, International Research Institute of Disaster Science (IRIDeS) at Tohoku University, ISSS is organizing the 4th ACUDR during November 26-28, 2017 in Sendai, Japan, as a side event of International Disaster and Risk Conference 2017 “World Bosai Forum.” It will be a good opportunity to see current conditions of the coastal areas affected by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake as well as sharing informative research outcomes presented by members of KOSHAM, DMST, and ISSS.

ABOUT SENDAI CITY
Sendai is a city with a population of one million, and is the political and economic center of Japan’s Tohoku(northeast)Region. Although Sendai is a large city, it is known throughout Japan as a modern city in harmony with nature. The city possesses beautiful scenery, such as the Hirose-gawa River that runs through central Sendai, and the lush zelkova trees that line its streets. Greenery is especially abundant in the center of the city, which has tree-lined streets and parks. As a result, Sendai is called the “City of Trees.”
