The 9th IIASA–DPRI Conference on Integrated Disaster Risk Management
Scientific Challenges in Implementing
Integrated Disaster Risk Management in a Changing World, 12–16 October 2009
by Tatsuo KUNIEDA - Japan Water Agency(JWA)
The titled international academic conference was organized by Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI) Kyoto University, Japan in collaboration with International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), Austria. The major concern of this forum is how to put into practice the Integrated Disaster Risk Management as titled. Actually, the Integrated "Water Resources" Management seems to have the same concern.
On behalf of NARBO Secretariat, Mr. Tatsuo KUNIEDA participated in this event and made a presentation of the IWRM Guidelines which was produced by UNESCO in collaboration with NARBO in 2009. The Spiral Model proposed in the Guidelines was praised by many professors and scientists as an ingenious and facilitative idea with lots of good examples and their keys for success descriptions.
Using this Guidelines, NARBO is going to organize the 6th NARBO IWRM training from 30 November to 7 December 2009 in Da Nang, Viet Nam.
