INTERPRAEVENT 2022 International Symposium
Oct. 17-21 2022 Taichung, Taiwan
Natural Disasters Occurrence, Reduction, and Restoration in Mountain Regions
Under the impacts of global warming and climate change, the complex geological environments, climate conditions, and continued change of land use/land cover in mountain regions have made it more challenging to predict mountainous hazards and their impacts on communities. The main topic of the symposium “Natural Disasters Occurrence, Reduction, and Restoration in Mountain Regions” is focused on natural hazards from the aspects of field investigation, occurrence monitoring, mitigation strategy, risks analysis, engineering governance, resilient community, and ecological restoration. As a prestigious event, the symposium provides an international platform and great opportunity for the experts and scholars in all relative fields to share the precious ideas, experiences, and research. Your participance is the most welcome for the success of the great event!

Call For Exhibitors

INTERPRAEVENT is an international society consists with experts and researchers, with the purpose to set up preventive protection against natural hazards including floods, debris flow, landslides, avalanches, and rockfall, and man-made influences and destruction, for protecting human living space. The INTERPRAEVENT 2022 Symposium will be held in October 2022 in Taichung, Taiwan. With the main topic of “Natural Disasters Occurrence, Reduction, and Restoration in Mountain Regions”, the conference provides a great opportunity for experts, researchers, and students all over the world to present their innovative research and practical studies and experiences. The seminar relies on sponsorship from industries, businesses, and government agencies. Therefore, we sincerely invite you to support this great event with the sponsorship, and to positively contribute to the success of the INTERPRAEVENT 2022 in Taiwan!

Background


Mountain regions are critical because of their diverse geological conditions, dynamic changes, and the multiple natural hazards that often occur. Mountains are high-risk environments that can experience a variety of natural hazards since initiated hazards often trigger secondary, cascading hazards, having a significant impact not only on the area of occurrence but often also on up- and downstream regions. High economic loss and human casualties are caused by geophysical (rockfalls, earthquakes, volcanic activities), hydrological (floods, avalanches, dammed-lake outbursts), and sediment-related hazards (landslides, driftwood, debris/mud flows, surface erosion). Under the impacts of global warming and climate change, spatiotemporal patterns of rainfall and other weather events have become more unevenly distributed, often with a more extreme magnitude and/or intensity of events. The complexity of mountain regions and the continued changes in climate and land use have made it more challenging to predict mountainous hazards and their impacts on communities. Based on the countless efforts made worldwide on natural hazards in mountain regions, tight international collaboration is strongly needed to answer questions related to causes of disasters, monitoring of hazardous phenomena, predicting disasters, and effective reduction of hazardous consequences.

Goal of the INTERPRAEVENT symposium 2022


With these background, INTERPRAEVENT 2022 will be held in October 2022 in Taichung,Taiwan. The main topic of the symposium “Natural Disasters Occurrence, Reduction, and Restoration in Mountain Regions” is focused on natural hazards from the aspects of investigating the phenomena, monitoring occurrences, analyzing risks, strengthening governance, increasing resilience, mitigating disasters, restoring impacted communities and enhancing preparedness.
