The UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction has been held by the United Nations with an aim to discuss the international disaster risk reduction strategy. The first conference was held in Yokohama in 1994 and the second in Kobe in 2005. The third conference will take place in Sendai, the largest city in the Tohoku region, which was affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011.
