The Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction was held from 14 to 18 March 2015 in Sendai City, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. Several thousand people participated to the World Conference and the related events, under the umbrella of building the resilience of nations and communities to disasters.

RISC-KIT was represented to the Conference dually:

1) through the side-event Environmental Supercomputing and disaster risk reduction. Lydia Cumiskey from Stichting Deltares gave the presentation "Resilience Increasing Strategies for Coasts – ToolKit (RISC-KIT)". You can access the .pdf file of the presentation through the link and learn more about the programme of the side event and the related presentations here

 

2) through the dissemination of the project's 2 page policy briefs by the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI).

 

The WCDRR was a great opportunity for RISC-KIT representatives to present the innovative concept of the project and discuss the progress made until now and the expected future impacts.
