Aceh International Workshop And Expo on Sustainable Tsunami Disaster Recovery (AIWEST-DR)

After entering the second decade from the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, the world has been progressing to focus on sustainable disaster risk reduction concept. AIWEST-DR was first launched in 2006 as part of Syiah Kuala University contribution to ensure the messages from the 2004 tsunami pass across the regions and become lessons learned for other tsunami prone countries. It was first named as Annual International Workshop and Expo on Sumatra Tsunami Disaster Recovery during the first ninth consecutive events. In year 2016, Tsunami and Disaster Mitigation Research Center (TDMRC) of Syiah Kuala University in Aceh collaborating with International Research Institute of Disaster Science (IRIDeS) of Tohoku University in Japan refine the name of this event into a new name with the same abbreviation: Aceh International Workshop and Expo on Sustainable Tsunami Disaster Recovery. We want to ensure the Sendai Frameworks for Disaster Risk Reduction, released in Sendai-Japan in 2005, be resonance in the mind of disaster researchers, practitioners, and policy makers.
