Welcome from the Chairs

Recognizing the importance of urban safety and urban environmental management, Institute of Industrial Science (IIS), the University of Tokyo and Regional Network office for Urban Safety (RNUS), Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) had organized an “International Symposium on New Technologies for Urban Safety of Mega Cities in Asia” (USMCA) since 2002 in Asian cities.

Recent outbreak of COVID-19, phenomena such as species loss, habitat degradation, pollution, invasive alien species, and global climate change are recognized as fundamentally altering life on our planet from terrestrial wilderness to the most densely populated cities. The concept " One Health, One World (OHOW)" addressed as Manhattan principles in 2004 has been well recognized which is a comprehensive science of human and animal health, and the global environment along with urban safety and urban environmental management.

The 2nd OHOW symposium will be jointly organized by One Health One World Research Initiative, the University of Tokyo, Japan and Dhaka University, Bangladesh. The OHOW symposium will include the topics such as climate change and green recovery, international public health research in Asia, infrastructure management and sustainable built environment, and urban safety & disaster mitigation. Beyond the academic program, we have curated networking opportunities, social events, and cultural experiences that will provide a platform for meaningful interactions, collaborations, and the forging of lifelong connections. We encourage all participants to take full advantage of these moments, as they often lead to serendipitous encounters and spark innovative ideas.
