Loading Events

The Silk Road has played an essential role in connecting the East and the West, through the exchange of trade, science technology and civilization. However, due to active underlying geological structures, including rapid tectonic uplift, climate change, and natural hazards (e.g., earthquakes, landslides, floods, typhoons, tsunamis, etc.) that occur frequently, these conditions place threats on both social development and livelihoods along the Silk Road. Furthermore, numerous challenges related to disaster risk reduction exist in this area, including a lack of background information and data sharing mechanism, as well as an absence of a scientific risk assessment method, and mitigation countermeasures, etc.
Based on this understanding, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), China Association for Science and Technology, and United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and International Scienti c Partners will jointly host the International Conference on Silk-roads Disaster Risk Reduction and Sustainable Development in Beijing, on May 11-12, 2019.

Conference Date: May 11-12, 2019
Venue: Beijing International Convention Center
