    The Geological Society of Malaysia and Institute of Geology Malaysia jointly established the GSM-IGM Flagship on Geoscience to Action for Disaster Risk Reduction (G2A4DRR) in 2015 to serve as a catalyst to incubate and market potential geoscience technology, tools and services that is relevant to address the risks of hazards. The Flagship aims to promote programmes on capacity building and professional development to be delivered in Malaysia initially and Southeast Asia in the long term. The G2A4DRR is helmed by Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia’s Southeast Asia Disaster Prevention Research Initiative (SEADPRI-UKM) and University of Malaya’s Geology Department, with support from the Newton Ungku Omar Fund (NUOF) administered by the Malaysian Industry-Government Group for High Technology (MIGHT).

    The Workshop on DISASTER RESILIENT CITIES: ADVANCES IN METEOROLOGICAL FORECASTING AND HAZARDS ASSESSMENT will be held on 28 & 29 June 2018 at Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (draft programme is enclosed). Approaches developed by NUOF Project Partners and others, to forecast meteorology and assess geophysical and atmospheric hazards will be introduced. Regional case studies will also be presented by early career researchers from the region, funded by the Malaysia Window to Cambridge at UKM.

    The G2A4DRR has secured a total of 5 seats for Members of IGM. Registration is free of charge on a first-come-first served basis, with a deadline of 20 June 2018. Participants are expected to attend ALL sessions on BOTH days of the Workshop.
