Description:Presented by Dr Jorge Diaz and MSc Sayaka Yoda, this workshop will consider new insights from lessons learnt in the aftermath of disasters and its relation to building resilience (2000-2020). Best practices from Japan and Chile will be revised. Dr Diaz has been involved during the response, recovery, mitigation and preparedness stages in Chile (2010-2013) while MSc Sayaka Yoda has been engaged in different projects in Japan and Nepal related to DRM. In a world that is being buffeted by turbulence and uncertainty, enhancing city resilience has become a major area of focus. A key challenge lies in the forward-looking nature of risks and vulnerability. That is, risk and vulnerability assessment need to take into account those factors and processes that may not yet have become evident in past disaster situations. Resilience should focus on people, especially the poor, elderly and the vulnerable. A closer look reveals that crises are not even-handed as far as the impact on people is concerned. Target audience This workshop is aimed at all those who are engaged in the decision-making process towards building resilience of cities. Who should attend: Central & Local Government Officials Leaders of Development Organizations Humanitarian Aid Staff
