Disaster Risk Reduction for Sustainable Societies

Nowadays societies face an increasing number of disasters and a wider variety of risks which pose serious threats to life and infrastructure. Environmental damage, climate change and lack of sustainable development measures add to these threats, making societies more vulnerable. Regardless of the resources involved in response and recovery, the bouncing-back, or, ideally, the bouncing-back better condition is very difficult to attain by the affected societies.

As provided also in the post-2015 development agenda, the integration of sustainable development goals (SDGs) into disaster risk reduction measures at all levels and in all stages of action is of utmost importance to attain the sustainability of our communities.

Who should attend?

The conference is addressed to environmental scientists, disaster managers, practitioners, representatives of public authorities, NGOs, and companies.
