Safe Built Environment

SAARC Region

With the growing incidences of natural disasters in the region
causing losses to human lives and scarce Housing stock, it is time
that the Architectural Profession in the Region does an introspection
within itself and prepares to take on the challenging task of
innovating design solutions to support the Governments and the
Society at large in preparing themselves to brace against these
growing disasters.

The seminar is proposed to have a very detailed introspection in the
related issues to help the delegates to start working in the
direction of preparing the fellow Architects for their role in
Designing of Safe Built Environment in the Region that shall be able
to withstand the natural disasters better, thus, protecting the human
lives and minimizing damages to the built environment.
