We are Strengthening Our Future
As the director of Istanbul Seismic Risk Mitigation and Emergency Preparedness Project (ISMEP), it is an honour for me to share this message with you. ISMEP, which is the first risk mitigation project conducted in our country, is one of the most successful examples of its kind not only in Turkey but also worldwide. Our project involves three main components; enhancing emergency preparedness, seismic risk mitigation for priority public buildings and building code enforcement.
