JILPT International Seminar 2013 (November 22)
The Labour Market Impacts of Natural and Environmental Disasters

This international seminar is aimed at stimulating and focusing a debate on the considerable labour impacts of natural and environmental disasters, be they earthquakes, floods, mining disasters and so on. By concentrating on the labour impacts of these disasters, both short term and long term, we hope to contribute to a greater understanding of what needs to be done to protect the labour market from the effects and helping it to deal with the consequences of these events.
