The evolution of disaster risk has become more complex due to the effects of climate change, advancements in technology and infrastructure, and growing anthropogenic pressures. The impending risks have wide-ranging and long-term implications for societal sustainable development. Under current development pathways, the world should prepare to face the possibility of more compounding hazards and complex risk landscapes in the future brought on by biological, technological, natural, and man-made hazards, of which many are interrelated and self-perpetuating. Devising adaptation and mitigation measures require deeper expositions and investigation of risk drivers in order to achieve sustainable development goals.
The “3rd International Symposium on Disaster Resilience and Sustainable Development”, referred to as DRSD 2023, organized by the Asian Institute of Technology, gathers experts, practitioners, policymakers, and students from Asia Pacific and beyond to present a discourse on improving development practices to reduce long-term complex risks and promote equitable sustainability. With wide-ranging thematic areas and diverse participation, DRSD 2023 is well placed to explore the complex challenges faced by Asia Pacific and beyond and collaborate for effective solutions.
The international symposium will be organized as a fully offline and in-person event from 7-8 December 2023. The program will include keynotespeeches, panel discussions, technical sessions, poster presentations, and academic exhibitions. DRSD 2023 will also serve as a platform where participants build new networks and partnerships; or strengthen existing ones to enhance future collaboration opportunities.
The conference is open to academics, practitioners, students, public officials, private institutions, non-governmental organisations, and intergovernmental organisations within the disaster risk reduction and sustainable development sectors. Participants from Asia Pacific and beyond are open to join.
