The International Conference on Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (ICDRI 2021) is an interactive virtual conference which follows International Workshops on Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (IWDRI) held in 2018 and 2019. ICDRI is the annual international conference of the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure (CDRI) in partnership with member countries, organizations and institutions to strengthen the global discourse on disaster and climate resilient infrastructure.
Today, frequent and extreme disasters continue to threaten people around the world, with risks exacerbated with climate change. The global COVID-19 pandemic further poses an unprecedented challenge in managing compound risks. Commemorating the Great East Japan Earthquake (GEJE)'s 10th anniversary, we look back to understand the reconstruction efforts to build back better, re-examine lessons learned, reflect upon what GEJE has taught us on enhancing future resilience, and discuss how to tackle the challenges that lie ahead.
