On 31 October-2 November 2023, PARATUS is invited to the NEEDS CONFERENCE 2023: BUILDING DISASTER RESILIENT SOCIETIES.
The NEEDS conference aims to explore the status quo and to foster new approaches to disaster research and management. The conference wishes to harness its broad, interdisciplinary expertise by gathering disaster researchers from academic institutions and practitioners from the disaster management community (European and beyond) to build networks and discuss the most pressing issues in disaster research across research and practice-oriented domains. The conference will take place in Enschede (NL) and it will focus on building a more resilient and inclusive future for all.
The PARATUS project will have its panel “Would future events echo the past ones in highly dynamic environments? Challenges in assessing compounding and multi-hazard risk” where the needs and ways to develop new exposure and vulnerability analysis methods that enable systemic risk assessment across sectors and geographic settings will be discussed. You can find here the panel description.
The event is hosted by the Centre for Disaster Resilience of the University of Twente and is organized in collaboration with research departments related to disaster science in the Netherlands from the VU Amsterdam, Erasmus University, Groningen University, and Leiden University.
The call for abstracts is now open! Submit your abstract here. The deadline is 15th June 2023.
