2013 EERI Pre-Conference Workshop: The Christchurch Earthquakes
CREW will be co-sponsoring a Pre-Conference Workshop at the 2013 EERI Annual Meeting.
THE CHRISTCHURCH EARTHQUAKES WORKSHOP: Response and Recovery Lessons from the 2010-2011 Earthquake Sequence in Canterbury, New Zealand
The workshop brings a recent, relevant earthquake sequence to Seattle, as a vivid example of the impacts and opportunities that result when low-probability moderate earthquakes strike an urban area. By relating the experiences surrounding the earthquake sequence that struck the Canterbury New Zealand region in 2010-2011, particularly for the city of Christchurch, the workshop will provide lessons relevant to building more resilient communities. Targeted attendees include local public and private decision-makers and the 2013 EERI annual meeting participants. Find more details here: christchurch workshop registration.
