Are you involved in planning and implementing relief and early recovery operations in urban areas? Are you working for an international agency, civil society organisation or national government agency ‘getting ready’ for your response to an urban disaster?

This webinar might be for you! Professor David Sanderson, one of the authors of our recently published ALNAP Lessons Paper ‘Responding to Urban Disasters: Learning from previous relief and recovery operations’(see document attached), will take you through the key lessons to consider when designing and implementing urban disaster-response programmes.

The presentation will focus on what we currently know about responding to earthquakes and floods in urban contexts using recent examples, such as the Typhoon Ketsana in the Philippines (2009), the Haiti earthquake of 2010 and the Northeast Japan earthquake and tsunami of 2011.
