GLOCOL Seminar & FIELDO Global Expert Lectures #9: Disaster Prevention Initiatives promoted by a Non-profit Organization in Japan -- Reducing the disaster risk in Asia

2011-11-17 (Thu) 12:00 noon - 1:30 p.m.

The Fieldwork, Internship and Experiential Learning Design Office (FIELDO) is holding a series of lectures called Expert Lectures. This 9th lecture is being held on Thursday, November 17, 2011. Many people are involved in activities through SEEDS Asia. The guest speaker, NAKAGAWA Yuko, from SEEDS Asia, will talk about the significance of being active as a member of this Japanese NPO and NGO.

About 40% of all disasters in the world occur in Asia. Climate changes and rapid urbanization make cities in Asia vulnerable and the risk of damage from natural disasters increases every year. What should we do to reduce as much as possible such risk? First, we must gain a better understanding of these disasters, and then, we must understand how to cope with these disasters and put such measures into place.
