INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON DISASTER RISK REDUCTION 2016 AT KOLKATA

The Excellous Society is pleased to announce that its flagship event the International Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction (ICDRR2016) will be hosted at Kolkata, India, 26th - 27th March 2017.

The Asia Pacific region faces over 60% of the world’s natural disasters. A new United Nations global assessment report on disaster risk, May, 2015, says India's average annual economic loss due to disasters is estimated to be $9.8 billion. This includes more than $7 billion loss on account of floods, landslides which includes West Bengal & north east region.

"The report is a wake-up call for countries to increase their commitment to invest in smart solutions to strengthen resilience to disasters," says UNDRR". The Sendai Framework adopted by UN Member States for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 (Sendai Framework) is the first major agreement of the post-2015 development agenda, with seven targets and four priorities for action.

A key objective of the ICDRR 2016 is to raising the voice and to educate how to reduce disaster risk, but also that responsibility should be shared with stakeholders including local government, the private sector and other stakeholder in every possible way. The substantial reduction of disaster risk and losses in lives, livelihoods and health and in the economic, physical, social, cultural and environmental assets of persons, businesses, communities and countries.

It is expected that 250 people including both international and domestic delegates, will attend the ICDRR 2016 Conference which will be held at the Kolkata, the City of Joy during end of March 2016.

Information regarding conference schedule is already published in the conference website www.icdrr2016.in
