Since its first commencement in 2006 following the giant Indian Ocean tsunami of 26 December 2004, AIWEST-DR is regularly hosted by TDMRC and partners with supports from various DRR stakeholders, reflecting the high level of interest and participation in this international scientific workshop. 
This workshop is increasingly important considering the recurrence of catastrophic disasters in the world, such as the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami 2011. 
7THAIWEST-DR 2012 is intended to provide an opportunity to discuss how academia, governments and other organizations involved in DRR activities can work together to build back better disaster resilient society and to promote DRR through reconstruction by linking the Indian Ocean region with  other disaster hit cities and countries.

In this workshop, we focus on the lessons learnt and best practices from the recovery process of 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, 2011 Great East Japan EQ & tsunami, and other disasters in the world that workshop participants present.
