Transformations 2019 aims to provide a platform for reciprocal learning between less and more developed contexts, and between researchers and practitioners, in order to enhance both practice and theory to support transformative changes for addressing climate change and other contemporary societal and environmental challenges.
The Transformation 2019 Conference seeks to provide a platform for reciprocal learning between developing and developed countries, and between researchers and practitioners. The conference will be held for the first time in a less developed country, which provides multiple benefits. By increasing the participation of practitioners and scientists from developing country contexts, knowledge will be expanded by the richness and diversity of transformation processes that have emerged spontaneously in less developed countries.
It will also include unique knowledge coming, for example, from the ancestral knowledge that is context dependent, all of these offering renewed ideas. One of the characteristics that differentiates less and more developed countries is that social-natural disasters often cause more population mortality in less developed countries. Under climate change, climate-related disasters are expected to be more frequent and severe; therefore, one of the themes of the conference will be on disasters, in order to support the improvement of Disaster Risk Reduction.
