The World Bosai Forum 2019 will be organized by the Tohoku University and will be held at the Sendai International Center, Sendai, Japan from 9 to 12 November 2019.
The World Bosai Forum started with the wish that we would not want to increase the number of people suffering from disasters any more in the Tohoku area where we experienced the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami.
At the Third United Nations World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction held in Sendai in 2015, The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction was adopted, which is a guideline for global disaster reduction efforts and people around the world discussed future disaster reduction.
The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction incorporates many ideas such as the importance of disaster risk management investment, better recovery, promoting the implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction is an important mission for Japan, since Japan has led the world in the field of disaster management. In addition, the activities of Japan and Tohoku in the process of recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake that occurred on March 11, 2011 has attracted strong interest from all over the world.
