Devastating wildfires, earthquakes and floods in Europe in recent years and a growing recognition of how climate change and aging infrastructure and buildings will exacerbate risk have highlighted a need to accelerate action towards the identification and management of disaster and climate risks. The Understanding Risk Europe forum will provide a platform for the public and private sector, non-governmental organizations, academia, media and local, national and regional institutions to build partnerships and to share knowledge and best practices.
The agenda will be available soon. Topics under consideration to be included are:
UR is a global community of 9,000+ 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.
