Design for Urban Disaster Conference
May 5-7, 2014
Harvard University, Cambridge, MA
Urban disasters are on the increase, with rapid urbanization causing more people to live in places vulnerable to hazards such as flood, earthquake and tsunami. This conference invites humanitarian aid practitioners, those in government and designers from spatial/physical disciplines to explore ways to improve actions before and after disaster. The conference addresses three key themes: response, resilience, and transformation.
