Earthquake science and hazard in Central Asia: conference summary

13th December 2016


Font size: -+

This report is the result of a three-day conference on earthquake science and hazard in Central Asia, sponsored by the Shakhmardan Yessenov Foundation and co-hosted by the Kazakhstan Institute of Seismology of the Academy of Sciences, the National Technical University of Kazakhstan, and the Earthquakes without Frontiers partnership. The conference convened earthquake scientists from China, Germany, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, India, Iran, Italy, Nepal and the UK, and had three aims:

  •     To highlight modern techniques used to understand earthquakes in Central Asia.
  •     To provide a forum to discuss and share strategies for the mitigation of earthquake risk.
  •     To promote effective communication of earthquake science to policy-makers and the public.

Through the promotion and exchange of results and techniques, the conference, and this report, seek to inspire, encourage and stimulate earthquake research in Kazakhstan, and raise awareness of realistic earthquake risk-reduction strategies. This report synthesises the key messages emerging from conference presentations and discussions throughout the three days. It draws on material shared by the delegates, whose presentations can be found, in full, on the Shakhmardan Yessenov Foundation website.
