This report presents the results of a workshop focusing on the high seismic risk in the northeast Asia region and offering scientists and engineers from various countries the opportunity to discuss regional approaches to improve collaboration in earthquake data exchange and analysis. It responds to the need to mobilize scientific knowledge and technological know-how to assess earthquake hazards and to strengthen disaster mitigation measures, and to pursue a cooperative activity on earthquake data analysis in the sub-region of North East Asia comprising the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Japan, Mongolia, People’s Republic of China, the Republic of Korea, and the Russian Federation.

The workshop is the result of collaboration between the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), under the Reduction of Earthquake Losses in the South Asia Region (RELSAR) program which purpose is to provide a platform for examining regional approaches to improve seismic data and earthquake risk mitigation, and was hosted by the China Earthquake Administration.
