The Special Interest Group (SIG) on “Disaster Resilience in Transport” of WCTRS serves as a forum
facilitating discussion, communication and various activities related to transport system resilience in
disasters. The primary objective of the SIG is to promote research about transport in disasters to improve
transport system disaster prevention and mitigation ability via international workshops, group meetings etc.
EASTS was founded in November 1994 as a result of the meeting among the transport experts coming from 13 countries/regions in eastern Asia. The significant meeting of experts happened in Kawana in Izu, Shizuoka Prefecture in Japan.
This is an umbrella organization of transportation science societies with the primary objectives of fostering and supporting excellence in transportation research and practice and to stimulate professional interchange in all aspects and modes of transportation.
The member domestic societies are in Australia, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and New Zealand.
L’objectif de WCTRS est d’établir un forum d’échanges entre chercheurs, gestionnaires, décideurs partout dans le monde, dans une perspective multimodale, multidisciplinaire et multisectorielle. WCTRS est devenu le forum principal d’échanges internationaux
