After the success of the first ever Asia based event in 2022, the Natural Disasters Expo will be returning to the Singapore Expo on the 6th & 7th December 2023, welcoming experts from around the globe to exhibit the latest revolutionary solutions to natural disaster management and mitigation.
Climate change has become a significant topic in recent years, with the younger generations in particular expressing their concerns about how this is impacting our planet. It is down to human activity that is causing the increase in the concentration of greenhouse gasses in the Earth’s atmosphere, resulting in global warming. Evidently, this has massively exacerbated climate hazards, and we have seen a huge spike in natural disasters over the past few years including flash floods, wildfires and cyclones.
The past 20 years has seen an obvious increase in climate-related disasters, with a shocking 6681 between 2000 and 2019, compared to 3656 between 1980 and 1999 (United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reductions, 2020).
This evidence supports how important the Natural Disasters Expo is in order to lessen the effects of such disasters. It is absolutely vital, now more than ever before, to take action in order to reduce the number of injuries, fatalities and loss of livelihoods caused by natural disasters.
It is absolutely essential to attend the Natural Disasters Expo as it has been specifically designed to support the mitigation of the most costly climate-related disasters. It promises to provide the most effective solutions, by showcasing products and services from cutting edge exhibitors. Last year’s event included the likes of Global Smart Rescue and the Flood Mitigation Industry Association, and keynote speakers from some of the biggest names and associations within the industry, including Charis Chan from Singapore Red Cross and Dr Jimmy Seow from Environ.
The Natural Disasters Expo Asia has been preparing an incredible schedule that will allow you to access all the tools and knowledge you need to help communities when they are faced with these tragedies, all under one roof.
