20 October 2023 (Dushanbe, Tajikistan)
The Asian Disaster Risk Reduction Conference 2023 (ADRC 2023) was held in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, on 20 October 2023. The conference was originally scheduled to take place in Tajikistan in 2020, but was postponed due to the spread of COVID-19.
The conference, entitled "Effective Implementation of DRR Measures -Enabling Digital Transformation in DRR," was organised in collaboration with the Committee of Emergency Situations and Civil Defense under the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan (CoES) and the Cabinet Office of Japan. The onsite venue was lively with participants including officials from 17 Member Countries, members of CoES and many other international organisations, research institutions and NGOs. We had 111 viewers joining the conference online including participants from 7 Member Countries, as well as others from a wide range of affiliations including academic and media institutes.
