BUP Disaster Management Forum is going to arrange a webinar on “Geospatial Information, Earth Observation, and Emerging Technologies and Techniques for Disaster Risk Reduction” on the event of International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction 2020, where the importance of different tools and how it impacts Disaster Risk Reduction will be discussed thoroughly.

Disasters are wreaking all across the world every single year. Bangladesh, being prone to disaster at yearly scale, has to face multiple disasters every year. Disasters in Bangladesh are significant events as they not only hamper the flow of life but cause so much damage that it becomes difficult from time to time to recover from them. These problems resulted in DRR (Disaster Risk Reduction) which is to reduce the risk and impact of a disaster by taking systematic approaches. To complete and apply these approaches, many tools are required. BUP Disaster Management Forum has planned to arrange this webinar to discuss the available tools & techniques for DDR and how emerging techniques are shaping the future of DDR, which will not only benefit the students to be selective on the skills to develop which studentship but also the professionals to ponder on the techniques. The hour-long event is to be held on Zoom on 13 October 2020, starting at 9:00 PM (BST).
