WECDRR 2016 Abstract Book


The members of the Organizing Committee of the WFEO World Engineering Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction 2016 (WFEO/WECDRR 2016) express their sincere gratitude to the presenting authors of the Plenary, Oral and Poster sessions. Their great contributions will substantially reduce natural and man-made disasters in Peru.

These collaborations are very important at this moment since near Lima, Peru, with its population of 9.75 million, there is a seismic gap according to the Geophysical Institute of Peru (IGP), and severe drought is affecting the country.

The following abstracts were presented at the WECDRR 2016 and the full Abstract book is available for download: WECDRR 2016 Abstract Book

Dr. Vilas Mujumdar, National member of WFEO Executive Council and Vice Chair of the WFEO Committee on Disaster Risk Management (WFEO-CDRM) made a presentation entitled Disaster Risk Reduction through Integrated Community Resilience (corresponding to the abstract PSL-3 Disaster risk reduction through integrated community resilience).

Prof. Dr. Ke Gong, Chair of the WFEO Committee on Engineering for Innovative Technologies (WFEO-CEIT) made a presentation on Innovative Technologies for Disaster Reduction (corresponding to the abstract PSL-10 Innovative technologies for disaster reduction).
