Symposium: “Tsunami Risk Reduction & Community Resilience

The Amrita Center for Wireless Networks & Applications, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham UNESCO Chairs and Esri India are jointly hosting a Virtual International Symposium titled ‘Tsunami Risk Reduction & Community Resilience’ on December 26, 2020 from 3 p.m. – 8 p.m. (IST). The symposium aims to reflect on the imprints of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, the subsequent impact on the global society, and advances in science and technology to build sustainable and resilient communities. 

The symposium will provide a platform to policy makers, technological innovators, the oceanography industry and researchers to come together and share their insights, as well as throw light on some of the key technological advancements and strategies that help to develop resilient communities across the world. It will address the following key areas, through two main themes.  

Theme 1: Tsunami – Responses & Lessons Learnt

Theme 2: Tsunami – Are we ready for the Future?

Key presentation areas:

  • Case Studies addressing the response of the international fraternity
  • Response, Governance, & Community Resilience Presentation
  • Technological Innovations – Monitoring, Detection and Early Warning Systems

The event will bring forth a detailed report that will summarize the current preparedness that has been developed for Tsunami, and will give an insight into the strategic planning framework that needs to be developed for improving the resilience for the coastal communities across the globe. 

We welcome you to join this endeavour. It would be great if you could pass this information to interested students and other colleagues as well.
