Evening Conference: Natural Hazards, Conflicts & Disasters in the Himalaya

Uncategorized

Find out how natural hazards, conflict and disasters all impact on the Himalaya and what lies ahead for the region.

This evening conference, organised by the UCL Humanitarian Institute, will examine the intrinsic connections and interdependence between the UN's sustainability goals and disaster risk reduction, with a particular focus on the Himalaya.

This region is prone to wide range of natural hazards and has witnessed some of the deadliest disasters in human history. It has also remained an epicentre of the geopolitical turbulence. The overlapping effects of these conditions have led to increased disaster risks and posed complex challenges for disaster mitigation efforts in the region.

The event will cover climate hazards, the history of disasters in the area, conflicts and society, institutional mechanisms, how resources are shared across boundaries and future challenges for the region.

Presenters from the UCL Humanitarian Institute will be joined by colleagues from the University of Kashmir. See the IRDR events page for details.

The event will be followed by a reception at 8pm.

Part of the UCL Humanitarian Institute Conference Series on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
