The Forum is a meeting place for those working on natural hazards, disaster risk reduction and crisis management. The event is targeted to policy and decision makers and practitioners in local, national and international governmental agencies, NGOs, and the private sector as well as researchers and early career scientists.

Last Forum 2022 focused on understanding the need to adapting and planning for changes, both predictable and unpredictable, as well as the importance of taking action now to better address the nexus between disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. The discussions addressed local events to global crises.

The morning session always focuses on the practitioner perspective and is usually held in Swedish. The afternoon session focuses on the research and international perspectives and is held in English.

The titile of the CNDS Forum in 2022 was 'Post-crisis pathways & adapting to a changing risk environment.'
