Worldwide, people need efficient, sustainable solutions for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. Integrative risk management, vulnerability reduction, and increase resilience are topics requiring a multidisciplinary approach. How can science learn from practice and respond appropriately to practical needs? Are the practitioners ready to accept solutions from science? How can we bridge the gap between science and practice? The side event will address these questions in a plenary with scientists and practitioners, contributing to a better understanding of each other’s needs and possibilities and to recommend further action.
