Disaster governance: The urban transition in Asia

Meeting or Conference
Organizer:
Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore (ARI)

07-08 Nov 2013

Venue:
Asia Research Institute Seminar Room, National University of Singapore
The conference focuses on how Asia's urban populations deal with disaster and its threat from a governance perspective, with governance understood as a process of social decision-making involving government, civil society and private enterprise. Remaining mindful of the blurred boundaries and frequent areas of overlap between ‘anthropogenic’ and ‘natural’ disasters in urban contexts, we take ‘disaster’ to denote any event that causes widespread destruction. Our central concern is with how the structures and processes of urban governance are working to develop more effective and inclusive initiatives to manage and prevent these large-scale destructive events.
