2023 International Conference on Climate Change and Disaster Risk
24 July 2023 15:15

Natural disasters are the common challenge faced by mankind today and have a devastating impact on the security of people’s life and property, and sustainable development. The climate change, which has been aggravating natural disasters in recent years, has become a global concern. In 2022 in particular, unprecedented monsoon rainstorm caused severe flood in Pakistan, which killed more than 1,700 people and left 33 million people affected. To address disaster risk, the United Nations has formulated the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (2015-2030). The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been paying increasing attention to disaster effects of climate change and its response. The Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are also closely related to mitigation of the impact of climate change and natural disasters. 

In order to explore the impact of climate change on natural disasters, reduce disaster risk, and raise people’s awareness of preventing disasters and mitigating disaster effect, China-Pakistan Joint Research Center on Earth Sciences (CPJRC) is collaborating with International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), Pakistan Academy of Sciences (PAS) and Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) in organizing the "International Conference on Climate Change and Disaster Risk" in Islamabad, Pakistan during 25-27 October, 2023. 

Experts and scholars in the related fields are welcomed to attend the Conference and share their knowledge and experience.
