AIWEST@SENDAI 2019
SHARING TOHOKU-ACEH EXPERIENCE, KNOWLEDGE AND CULTURE
TOHOKU UNIVERSITY, SENDAI, JAPAN     November 7-8, 2019
 
               
 

Background

AIWEST-DR was first launched in 2005 as part of Syiah Kuala University’s contribution to ensure the transmission of the experiences, lessons and research drawn from the 2004 Sumatra Earthquake across the regions and countries at risk of a tsunami. The members of TDMRC (Tsunami and Disaster Mitigation Research Center) have taken the step to globalize their conference by offering Tohoku University the opportunity to organize AIWEST@SENDAI 2019.  This year’s theme will be “Raising Tsunami Awareness, Reducing Tsunami Risk: Sharing Tohoku-Aceh Experience, Knowledge and Culture.” We wish to celebrate the long partnership between Tohoku University (IRIDeS- International Research Institute of Disaster Science) and Syiah Kuala University (TDMRC-Tsunami & Disaster Mitigation Research Center). It will also be an opportunity to draw comparative studies between the 2004 Sumatra Earthquake and Tsunami and the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake.
Last but not least, it will be an opportunity to further our application of the UN Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR) endorsed in Sendai in March 2015. To reach these goals, we invite all researchers, practitioners and policymakers to contribute to this long conversation between Indonesia, Japan and beyond, to raise tsunami awareness and develop the culture of risk prevention. This event will take place in coordination with the World Bosai Forum, November 9-12, and the World Tsunami Museum Conference, November 8, 2019.
