The conference will focus on transdisciplinary approaches which will bring together a broad range of stakeholders, with emphasis on inclusion of participants from all facets of natural disaster risk related work, such as engineers, earth science professionals, emergency managers, urban planners, social scientists, community groups, environmental practitioners and policy makers.

RISK researchers, Stefan Hochrainer-Stigler, Muneta Yokomatsu, Adriana Keating, John Handmer and Junko Mochizuki will deliver presentations showcase the program’s ongoing research including:

  • Integrating agent-based modeling with dynamic stochastic general equilibrium modeling, as applied to Pakistan’s flood risk
  • Data driven exploration regarding the heterogeneity of disaster risk in Madagascar
  • Measurement framework and analysis of disaster resilience globally
  • Large scale drought risk assessment and management
  • Optimal insurance schemes under model ambiguity

About IDRiM

The IDRiM (Integrated Disaster Risk Management) Society and its Journal (IDRiM Journal) were officially launched on October 15, 2009 in Kyoto, Japan, at the 9th IIASA-DPRI Forum on Integrated Disaster Risk Management (IDRiM Forum). The move to set up the IDRiM Society was based on the success of a series of nine Forums (the IIASA-DPRI Forums) on Integrated Disaster Risk Management organized by the Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI) of Kyoto University and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA).
