Science for disaster risk management 2017: knowing better and losing less

Source(s):  Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre (DRMKC)

This report, produced by the Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre (DRMKC), aims to provide reviews of scientific solutions and their practical use in various areas of disaster risk management (DRM) in Europe. It is comprehensive in scope but selective in topic and is written in a format that is intended to be accessible to all DRM actors. The reviews of the scientific evidence base are summaries of

  1. recent advances/outcomes of EU research projects,
  2. relevant national work and
  3. relevant international work.

This flagship science report was produced as a contribution to the Science and Technology Roadmap of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction. This report is the result of the multi-sectorial and multi-disciplinary networking process and represents the combined effort of more than two hundred experts. It will support the integration of science into informed decision making through synthesizing and translating evidence for disaster risk management and strengthening the science-policy and science-operation interface.

The preparation of the report succeeded in pulling together a network of 273 contributors from 26 mostly European countries and 172 organizations. It has been endorsed by 11 European Commission Services.
