The World Bank and Japan started the Project “Learning from Megadisasters” in October 2011. The project aims to share Japan’s knowledge on disaster risk management (DRM) and post disaster reconstruction with countries vulnerable to disasters. The project is collecting and analyzing information, data, and evaluations performed by academic and research institutions, nongovernmental organizations, government agencies, and the private sector. In this seminar, participants will discuss; 1) How is each organization sharing lessons from the GEJE with the World? 2) How can the country utilize these lessons to strengthen DRM? 3) How should Japan share the lessons from the GEJE with the world?

This seminar is intended for WBG staff and policy makers and practitioners of national and local governments, particularly of urban development, transport, environment, and transit departments and housing authorities, private developers, and academics.
