Armenia_pic.jpg24-25 November 2008 (Armenia)

On 24 and 25 November 2008, the Armenian National Survey for Seismic Protection (NSSP) and the ADRC held a seminar entitled "Knowledge: Achieving Safer Communities through Education and Training in Disaster-Prone Mountainous Areas" in Syunik Prefecture and Vayot' Dzor Prefecture. Mr. Takaaki Shiratori of the Takenaka Corporation, a leading private construction company in Japan, was invited to give a seminar focusing on measures for coping with the damage caused by the collapse of school buildings, reservoirs and dams. The participants were highly interested in both lectures, as Armenia and Japan share similar geographical features, including mountainous terrain, and both were followed by active questionand-answer sessions.
