The 11th ACEH INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP AND EXPO
ON SUSTAINABLE TSUNAMI DISASTER RECOVERY
(AIWEST-DR 2018)

Banda Aceh-Indonesia, October 10-12, 2018

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Background

After entering the second decade from the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, the world has been progressing to focus on sustainable disaster risk reduction concept. AIWEST-DR was first launched in 2005 as part of Syiah Kuala University contribution to ensure the messages from the 2004 tsunami pass across the regions and become lessons learned for other tsunami prone countries. It was first named as Annual International Workshop and Expo on Sumatra Tsunami Disaster Recovery during the first ninth consecutive events. Since 2016, the name of this event has been refined into a new name with the same abbreviation: Aceh International Workshop and Expo on Sustainable Tsunami Disaster Recovery. We want to ensure the Sendai Frameworks for Disaster Risk Reduction (SFDRR), released in Sendai-Japan in 2005, be resonant in the mind of disaster researchers, practitioners, and policy makers. Therefore, we invite researchers, academia, disaster practitioners and managers to submit their extended abstracts to the 11th AIWEST-DR 2018.
