CNDS Summer Webinar, 24-25 August 2020

About the CNDS Summer Webinar

This two half-day webinar (14:00-17:00 CEST) will gather PhD students and researchers from the earth, engineering and social sciences in an effort to better understand the dynamics and negative impacts of natural hazards (volcanoes, floods, droughts, wildfires, earthquakes, etc.) as well as to deepen our knowledge on disaster risk management, international crisis preparedness and social vulnerability. The focus will be on multiple natural hazards, including compound events and cascading effects. We will explore Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) through the disaster cycle (mitigation, preparation, response and recovery) and in relation to the interaction of multiple natural hazards with human society. Together with senior researchers in the forefront of this field, we will discuss and propose solutions to complex problems in DRR.

This two half-day webinar has been designed primarily for PhD students but participation is also open to researchers and practitioners who work with Disaster Risk Reduction issues.
