This report is the result of a three-day conference on earthquake science and hazard in Central Asia. The conference had three aims including highlighting modern techniques used to understand earthquakes in Central Asia, providing a forum to discuss and share strategies for the mitigation of earthquake risk, and promoting effective communication of earthquake science to policy-makers and the public.
This report synthesises the key messages emerging from conference presentations and discussions throughout the three days. It draws on material shared by the delegates, whose presentations can be found, in full, on the Shakhmardan Yessenov Foundation website.
