As a result of this serious situation, and integrated with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Sustainable Development Goals 2030, there is an urgent need to promote international cooperation in disaster risk reduction and sustainable development along the Silk Road. Resilience against natural hazards must be improved and an international platform for joint research and information sharing relevant to disaster risk reduction and sustainable development is needed. Therefore, an international research program for the disaster risk reduction along the Silk Roads is being implemented under the umbrella of SiDRR (Silk-roads Disaster Risk Reduction) by Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The implementation of this program will enhance disaster prevention and will contribute to our ability to guarantee the security of livelihood of the affected countries. Based on this understanding, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), China Association for Science and Technology, and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and International Scientific Partners will jointly host the International Conference on Silk-roads Disaster Risk Reduction and Sustainable Development in Beijing, on May 11-12, 2019.
The secretariat of the International Conference on Silk-roads Disaster Risk Reduction and Sustainable Development invites representatives from all the hosts, organizers and co-organizers, as well as renowned experts and researchers from all continents to participate in this Conference. The Conference will consist of plenary sessions and symposiums. We anticipate some 500 participants.
