Disaster Resilience Lessons from Japan: The Sendai Dialogue & TEDxSendai

From 9-10 October 2012, world leaders will meet for the Sendai Dialogue and TEDxSendai to discuss the lessons from the 2011 tsunami and to build a global consensus on the need to better prepare for disasters that often impact the poor the most.

Eighteen months after the largest earthquake in Japan’s history triggered a devastating tsunami, the lessons of the country's disaster risk management and resilience are resonating through cities facing similar risks around the world.
 
From 9-10 October 2012, world leaders will meet near the epicentre of that disaster for the Sendai Dialogue and TEDxSendai to discuss the lessons from the tsunami and to build a global consensus on the need to better prepare for disasters that affect everyone but often impact the poor and vulnerable the most.
 
Watch all of the Sendai Dialogue sessions and TEDxSendai online and share your resilience stories through the #1000Voices campaign.
