Annual General Meeting, 15 December 2016

Annual Conference on Disaster Preparedness and Response (ACDPR) 2018: Emerging Challenges & Opportunities Ahead
Annual Conference on Disaster Preparedness and Response (ACDPR) 2018: Emerging Challenges & Opportunities Ahead

Date: 13 January 2018 (Saturday)
Location: Hong Kong Academy of Medicine

[Registration is currently open! Please click here]

Organised by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Disaster Preparedness and Response Institute (HKJCDPRI), with supporting organisations, the third ACDPR will continue the momentum into a more practical and sustained effort from key actors of disaster preparedness and response in Hong Kong. While the first two conferences had raised the interest of targeted emergency institutions with a broad scope of themes, in light of recent major incidents in Hong Kong and overseas, such as the MTR firebomb attack, Lamma ferry disaster, terror attack in Manchester Arena, Champs Elysees attack in Paris, etc., we aspire that subsequent conferences can bring in ideas on practical solutions to emerging specific disaster risks for a metropolitan city like Hong Kong.
