EMI’s Institute of Urban Resilience (IUR) offers the Urban Resilience Webinar series as an innovative learning experience for professionals. In these Web-based seminars you will learn from and interact real-time with world-renown experts on the most relevant urban resilience and disaster risk management (DRM) topics. The Webinars provide a structured and comprehensive lecture on the topic with pertinent examples and case studies to facilitate the learning process. Wherever you might be located, you will be able to ask questions to the experts and interact real-time with your peers to get answers. This enables a more effective learning process.

This year, the webinar series consists of two Webinar Sessions:
