Disaster Management in ASEAN and Japan
"Potential Risks in the region and alert system"

 

JST13:00-16:30, Dec. 18th (Tue), 2007

!!! Live Broadcasting is now resumed !!!


The Tsunami disaster occurred on December 26th, 2004 gave a great damage to SOI Asia partner countries. It reminded us of the importance of universities' roles for disaster prevention and restoration both for local areas and wider regions across borders. One of the important roles for universities is to analyze and predict potential disaster risks in the region and to suggest effective alert system both for local area and for wider region across borders. Japan, which has a lot of experiences of several types of natural disasters, is also expected to share it's knowledge and research output with Asian friends. SOI Asia Project has been conducted several symposium, seminars and lecture series in these three years (* see the list of the past lectures). This is the second symposium as a part of this series of activities.

This symposium is to pull together students and researchers from several fields to discuss about alert systems in natural disaster such as (1) Earthquake, (2) Tsunami and (3) Flood. Also we welcome students' opinions from variety of view points to the panel discussion on "Why evacuation advisories are often neglected by people? - Effective hazard maps, evacuation guidelines and local universities roles"

Panelists are joining from Thailand, Indonesia and Japan over the Internet and SOI Asia environment. The symposium will be lively broadcasted both to SOI Asia partners and to the internet.
