DRR - Disaster Risk Reduction
By 2030, more than 75% of the urban population will live in cities vulnerable to natural disasters, such as floods, earthquakes, landslides and fires. Natural hazards are part of the physical earth processes, which cannot stop from happening, but investments in cost-effective prevention measures can reduce the risks and mitigate the impacts of disasters to make cities more resilient when disaster strikes. 'Communicating DRR Science & more' focuses on understanding key concepts within the Disaster Risk Reduction umbrella, the progress and challenges in the field and its growing importance at the global scale to raise public awareness. In addition, we will talk about cross-sectoral sciences and closely related topics in Disaster Risk Reduction such as geographic information systems, digital mapping, hydraulic modelling, cultural heritage, climate change and natural disasters, among others.
