The IDRiM Society is pleased to announce its 14th International Conference, entitled "Disaster Resilient Communities for Life," which will be held in Cartagena, Colombia. Organized in collaboration with IDRiM, the 2024 conference is hosted by the National Unit for Disaster Risk Management (UNGRD) of Colombia in partnership with various national and international organizations.

The conference theme, Disaster Resilient Communities for Life, mirrors the government's overarching vision, "Colombia, the world power of life." This vision aims to establish the foundations for Colombia to emerge as a global leader in the collective pursuit of life, humanity, and nature. 

The conference has a broader focus on integrated disaster prevention and mitigation, emergency response, and disaster recovery. It encourages the scientific community to consider new perspectives beyond traditional risk management concepts, which seem insufficient to address emerging risks and uncertainties. As the nature of risk becomes increasingly systemic, how we think and act must also become more systemic to maintain the health and well-being of people and the planet. 

Scheduled over two and a half days, from August 28th to 30th, 2024, the conference will provide a collaborative platform for exchanging knowledge. IDRiM2024 in Cartagena is positioned as a unique space for fostering dialogue and sharing experiences within the field. Under IDRiM's motto, "I dream, you dream, we all dream for a safer world," 2024 will be the year when Colombia envisions a safer and more integrated country and region.

A call for abstracts and special session submissions is now open. Deadline: 15 May 2024
