Summary:  The Silk Road, beginning in the Han Dynasty (207 BC-220 BC), crosses more than 70 countries and affects some 4.4 billion people (63% of the world). For centuries, the Silk Road has played an essential role in connecting the East and the West, through the exchange of trade, science technology and civilization. However, due to active underlying geological structures, including rapid tectonic uplift, climate change, and natural hazards (e.g., earthquakes, landslides, floods, typhoons, tsunamis, etc.) that occur frequently, these conditions place threats on both social development and livelihoods along the Silk Road. Furthermore, numerous challenges related to disaster risk reduction exist in this area, including a lack of background information and data sharing mechanism, as well as an absence of a scientific risk assessment method, and mitigation countermeasures, etc.     As a result of this serious situation, and integrated with the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Sustainable Development Goals 2030, there is an urgent need to promote international cooperation in disaster risk reduction and sustainable development along the Silk Road. Resilience against natural hazards must be improved and an international platform for joint research and information sharing relevant to disaster risk reduction and sustainable development is needed. Therefore, an international research program for the disaster risk reduction along the Silk Roads is being implemented under the umbrella of SiDRR (Silk-roads Disaster Risk Reduction) by Chinese Academy of Sciences.    The implementation of this program will enhance disaster prevention and will contribute to our ability to guarantee the security of livelihood of the affected countries. Based on this understanding, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), China Association for Science and Technology, and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and International Scientific Partners will jointly host the International Conference on Silk-roads Disaster Risk Reduction and Sustainable Development in Beijing, on May 11-12, 2019.

 

Hosts: Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS); China Association for Science and Technology; United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP)
