Mission

The European Scientific and Technical Advisory Group (E-STAG) was established by the UNDRR Regional Office for Europe and Central Asia in 2018. Its purpose is to strengthen the inclusion of the science and technology communities in disaster risk reduction (DRR) efforts, as called by the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015–2030. Scientists dedicated to different thematic threads are nominated by European governments to compose the group, with the aim to help 55 countries across Europe and Central Asia tackling emerging challenges and risks.

In 2018-2019, the E-STAG was composed of experts nominated by Member States (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Croatia, Germany, Israel, Italy, Montenegro, The Netherlands, Russian Federation, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland), with scientists selected for their dedication to significant thematic issues (fire risk, space-based information, data interoperability, and disaster risk management), and space to embrace young scientists’ skills.

The work of the E-STAG is devoted to improve risk knowledge in the various countries it represents, and to support national as well as local authorities, policy and decision-makers, but also private investors and other relevant DRR stakeholders, by contributing to research-informed and evidence-based implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, especially assessing gaps and challenges for formulating recommendations.
