The Asian Disaster Reduction Center held the fifth ADRC Online DRR Seminar on 18 October 2021.
This seminar was attended by 127 participation from 14 countries around the world with the theme of "Promoting Disaster Mitigation Strategies for Urban Resilience."
Urbanization exacerbates disaster vulnerabilities as more people live in unsafe buildings, use poor transportation and roads, and are increasingly exposed to the threats of floods, landslides, and tsunamis. In this context, the seminar presented various perspectives, tools, and approaches to promoting disaster mitigation strategies for urban resilience.
