~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Japan and Taiwan locate on the Pacific Ring of Fire and thus sharing similar geographies as well as various natural disasters. In addition, though situated in different climate zones, both countries have also been suffered from the increasing environmental disasters due to the climate change.

In order to give a comprehensive understanding of the Taiwan’s and Japan’s academic and practical efforts regarding to “Disaster Prevention and Damage Reduction for Sustainable Development” and thus seeking potential cooperation, the NTU International College Provisional Office and College of Medicine have invited two distinguished scholars from one of the NTU’s strategic partner universities – Kyoto University. These two experts will not only introduce the two academic institutions including the Graduate School of Advanced Integrated Studies in Human Survivability (Shishu-Kan) and the Disaster Prevention Research Institute of Kyoto University, but also share with us the latest development of disaster-related research in Japan.

Therefore, this forum aims to offer cooperative opportunities to understand the global trend towards “Disaster Prevention and Damage Reduction for Sustainable Development” and to create collaborations between two nations and institutes.
