What is Understanding Risk?

UR is a global community of 8,000+ experts and practitioners active in the creation, communication, and use of disaster risk information. Members share knowledge and experience, collaborate, and discuss innovations and best practice in risk assessment. The community convenes every two years at UR Forums – five-day events that highlight groundbreaking work, facilitate nontraditional partnerships, and showcase new technical know-how in disaster risk identification. Past global forums were held in London, Cape Town, Washington D.C. and Mexico City. In the interim, regional conferences are also held to galvanize localized efforts and build regional capacity in the area of disaster risk assessment. Regional events in 2018 were held in the Balkans and the Pacific Islands.
