The 13th AIWEST-DR 2021 conference aims to bring together hundreds of participants globally to connect and discuss possible solutions about issues that matter in sustainable DRR today, including our joint future beyond the Covid-19 pandemic. This year’s theme will be “Strengthening Community Resilience from Compound Disaster in Pandemic Situations”. It will be an opportunity to increase participants’ awareness and understanding of disaster risks during a pandemic.

The 13th AIWEST-DR 2021 conference organizing committee remains vigilant in its monitoring of the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to prioritize the health, safety, and wellbeing of its attendees.
