Date: 18 - 20 September 2013
Venue: Common Room, University House, Australian National University
As natural disasters impact inequitably on vulnerable populations around the world, disaster preparedness, recovery and reconstruction is increasingly being approached through the lens of integrated public policies on development, demographics, and disaster risk reduction. How the cross-cultural context influences disaster risk governance, and how new communities and families arise from the destruction will form the core dialogue for the papers from renowned international experts being presented at this conference.
Major speakers will include:
- Professor Elizabeth Frankenberg, Duke University, North Carolina
- Professor Susan Cutter, University of South Carolina
- Professor Mark Pelling, King's College, London
- Professor Douglas Paton, University of Tasmania
- Professor Josifina Natividad, University of The Philippines
- Professor Yang Chenggang, Population Research Institute, Chengdu, China
- Professor Ken Miichi, Iwate Prefectural University, Japan.
