22nd IAHR-APD Congress 2020

22nd IAHR-APD Congress 2020
The theme of the congress is “Creating infrastructure resilient to weather-related disasters”. Due to global climate change, disasters induced by extreme weather have been increasing, and Japan has not escaped such disasters. Extraordinary heavy rains have been causing large-scale disasters every year. These occurred at the Kinu River in 2015, in Central Hokkaido in 2016, in Northern Kyushu in 2017, and in Western Honshu in 2018. The disasters caused tremendous damage and loss from flooding and landslides.
