Forum on Natural Hazards and Disasters
The Forum on Natural Hazards and Disasters is arranged by CNDS and serves as a meeting place for societal actors with an interest in reducing the risks and consequences of natural hazards and disasters. The purpose is to strengthen knowledge sharing, stimulate dialogue, and improve interaction between academics, practitioners, and decision makers working with disasters. The long-term goal is to create an arena for the exchange of knowledge in order to strengthen disaster research in Sweden.
The Forum on Natural Hazards and Disasters is targeted to policy and decision makers and practitioners in local and governmental agencies, NGOs, and the private sector as well as researchers and PhD students in disaster research and in transdisciplinary research environments. The target group also includes publicly appointed and elected officials on the local, regional and national level in Sweden.
