FARU 2017

The conference was truly global, with a wide range of participating countries Sri Lanka, United Kingdom, United States, India, China, Bangladesh and Australia to name a few.

The conference was also fortunate enough to International Journal of Disaster Resilience in the Built Environment’s Dilanthi Anarathunga! Papers presented by the keynote, guest speakers and authors of FARU 2017 are available in the proceedings and can be downloaded from
