Singapore is well-shielded from natural calamities like earthquakes, typhoons and tsunamis. Natural Hazards Congress-2020 will provide a forum for discussion of the integration of Hazard information into effective emergency risk management.

Asia is the most disaster-prone region in the world. The region has borne brunt of the physical and economic damages of natural disasters. With reference to the data collected by the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED), human toll from natural disasters in the last 5 years has been staggering. The region remains exposed to more natural disasters and according to the Asian Development Bank, the region’s economic progress will be undermined by the rising number of floods, landslides and other disasters. That provides a stark reminder that Asia’s many densely populated and expanding coastal cities will in particular remain vulnerable to weather-related disasters.
