Aim of the Conference:
The International Consortium on Landslides (ICL) proposed the “Sendai Partnerships 2015–2025 for global promotion of understanding and reducing landslide disaster risk” in contribution to the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction. The proposal goes into effect by the signature of ICL, Special Representative of Secretary General of the United Nations, UNESCO, Cabinet office and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) of the Government of Japan and other 17 organizations in Japan and overseas. This partnership was significantly gained from the implementation of JICA and JST Joint funded SATREPS projects.
At this conference, we will introduce the results of SATREPS project in Croatia (2009-2014) and in Vietnam (2011-2017) , and other SATREPS and JICA projects in Malarysia, Butan and Honduras. Then, we will examine further Japan’s international contribution for the landslide disaster reduction as a part of Sendai Partnerships 2015-2025.
ICL and UNESCO, UNISDR, and other ICL supporting organization will organize the Fifth World Landslide Forum (WLF5) in Niigata, Japan. This conference is the mid-term milestone of the Sendai Partnerships 2015-2025 and the first five year milestone of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. Participants will examine road map of the Sendai partnerships 2015-2025 to WLF5 2020.
