(PRWEB) May 20, 2013

Jointly established by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) and Sichuan University (Sichuan U), China's first Institute for Disaster Management and Reconstruction (IDMR) has recently been officially opened. Both institutions also held the Forum on "Post-Disaster Revival and International Disaster Reduction" to conclude lessons learnt from Wenchuan Post-Disaster Reconstruction and Lushan 4.20 Earthquake. Ms Margareta Wahlström, Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Disaster Risk Reduction and Director of the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction, was the Guest of Honour and a keynote speaker.

Professor Timothy W. Tong, PolyU President, Professor Roy Chung, Chairman of PolyU Court, and several members of PolyU Council formed a senior delegation to Sichuan and witnessed the opening of IDMR and the Forum. During their stay in Sichuan, Professor Tong and Professor Chung visited Yingxiu Primary School and learnt about the establishment of a social work station by PolyU expert in the school. Later on, Professor Chung and the Council members went further into the mountain area of Wenchuan and met with the minority residents of JinBo Village.

Currently PolyU is introducing some of its professional programmes across the border through IDMR to support the reconstruction and sustainable development of Sichuan. IDMR is comprised of the following departments: (1) Post-disaster Rehabilitation and Medical Treatment (subject areas: physiotherapy, occupational therapy, prosthetics and orthopedics, biomaterials and bio-engineering); (2) Disaster Nursing; (3) Disaster Social Work and Psychology (subject areas: post-disaster community reconstruction and mental rehabilitation); and (4) Environment Planning and Engineering (subject areas: shockproof structure, urban planning with disaster prevention).
