IDRC Davos 2014 Updates
Typhoon Haiyan has claimed over 7000 lives in the Philippines which impressively shows how one negative event can set off a chain that reverberates throughout an entire nation and region. Disasters – be they due to natural hazards or man-made – have yet again dominated news coverage in 2013 and highlighted the need for international cooperation on Disaster Risk Management.
The 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC Davos 2014 from 24 – 28 August 2014 in Davos, Switzerland, is organised in close cooperation with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR). IDRC Davos 2014 will serve UNISDR as the science & technology input platform for the post-2015 framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (HFA2) and provide recommendations towards the UN World Conference WCDRR in Sendai, Japan, in March 2015. Scientists from various disciplines, experts and practitioners are encouraged to contribute to this process by submitting papers to the IDRC Davos 2014. The call for abstract is open!
