We will have a talk session with the guest lecture, Dr Fuko Nakai (Nagoya Institute of Technology, Japan) on the 9th December. This session will be held as a Skype meeting at EB602.
- The community practice on how to mitigate disaster damage and risk management has been on top of the agenda for public sectors.
- Dr Nakai is an ECR who is specialised in the field of community governance and risk management, and she has been working on the research projects on ‘Tsunami evacuation behaviour’ and ‘Integrating computer simulation of tsunami evacuation’ at Nagoya Institute of Technology and Kyoto University.
- During this talk session, we will discuss ‘potential functions of a community and citizens’ collaboration’ and the impact of ‘collaborative work as the management platform’ to mitigate the risk and disaster impact in the context of natural disasters.
- This session will provide unique topics in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), such as ‘Goal 9: Sustainable Cities and Communities’ and ’Goal 17: Partnerships for the Goals’.
