The Understanding Risk (UR) Community is the pre-eminent platform for collaborating and sharing knowledge in the field of disaster risk assessment and risk communication. Created in 2010 by the World Bank and other partners, the UR Community convenes every two years at the global UR Forum to showcase the latest innovations and build new partnerships to foster advances in the field. Previous events have been held in Washington D.C., Cape Town, London and Venice.

UNISDR ONEA-GETI and the North Queensland Primary Health Network (NQPHN), Australia, are partnering to deliver a series of workshops for the primary healthcare sector from 7-10 November 2016 in Cairns, Mackay and Townsville, Australia. The workshops are tailored for the primary health care sector and other stakeholders involved in disaster management.
In 2015, representatives of 195 countries met in Paris for the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 21) to discuss the impact of climate change on societies, their livelihoods and their cultural heritage. Evidence suggests that torrential downpours, violent and unexpected storms, heat waves, new records in pollution and landslides are increasingly frequent. Over the last few years alone, there has been a rise in the amount of incidents (earthquakes, acts of vandalism, wars, floods & fires) causing irreversible damage to cultural and heritage sites. We must not forget these sites are a record of our collective memory and their loss represents, in a sense, a loss of our own identity. Portugal has had its share of heritage disasters. These include, amongst others: large earthquakes in Lisbon and Angra do Heroísmo; fires in the Palaces of Queluz and Ajuda, the Church of São Domingos and the theatre of D. Maria; a flood in 1967 that caused damage to the Gulbenkian Foundation’s collection. These are but a few from a long list of such disasters.
The European Forum for Disaster Risk Reduction (EFDRR) is intended to serve as the forum for exchanging information and knowledge, coordinating efforts throughout the Europe region and for providing advocacy for effective action to reduce disasters. Moreover, it shall be devoted to contemporary issues of importance needed to promote a good political climate for implementation of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Reduction.

Il pensiero di Agostino Miozzo, ex DPC, ex capo della PC Europea ed attuale operatore ONU. Un successo la web-conference del 28/01 voluta dalla FIR per avvicinarsi al congresso 2016
Sono state oltre 80 le persone le persone collegate virtualmente con Agostino Miozzo lo scorso giovedì 28 gennaio. La teleconferenza organizzata dalla Federazione Italiana Ricetrasmissioni Citizen Band ha avuto come argomento conference sarà “La Protezione Civile Italiana e l’Agenda 2030”, richiamando le recenti deliberazioni delle Nazioni Unite sulle politiche per la riduzione del rischio negli insediamenti umani. Questo evento si inserisce nelle iniziative che la FIR sta mettendo in campo per avvicinarsi al proprio congresso nazionale previsto per la fine dell’anno. L’ex funzionario del Dipartimento della Protezione Civile ha illustrato una presentazione che partiva dall’osservazione che entro il 2050 l’80% della popolazione mondiale vivrà in numero ristretto di città, le megalopoli da oltre 40 milioni di abitanti. L’ ONU ha dato vita al “Documento di Sendai” definita come “una sorta di vangelo per i protettori civili planetari”. La riflessione poi si è spostata sull’analisi storica degli ultimi anni evidenziando come le più grandi catastrofi fossero de facto prevedibili. Tsunami, blackout, eruzioni di vulcani, i morti per le grandi calche sono noti e prevedibili. “Oggi il rischio – ha evidenziato il relatore – è conosciuto” ma allora “perché subiamo le grandi catastrofi?”.

The increasing need to protect civilian infrastructure and industrial facilities against unintentional loads arising from accidental impact and explosion events as well as terrorist attack is reflected in the sustained interest in this SUSI meeting over nearly three decades. While advances have been made over this period, nevertheless many challenges remain, such as to develop more effective and efficient blast and impact mitigation approaches than currently exist.
Risk Analysis 2016 is the 10th International Conference on Computer Simulation in Risk Analysis and Hazard Mitigation. The conference covers a series of important topics of current research interests and many practical applications. It is concerned with all aspects of risk management and hazard mitigation, associated with both natural and anthropogenic hazards.
Over 80% of economic disaster losses are attributed to weather-related events. Given that climate change is likely affecting the frequency and intensity of such events there is a need to improve the knowledge, understanding and data on climate impacts for establishing an appropriate disaster risk management as part of climate change adaptation.
