identify · data · emerging technologies · risk assessment
This session aims to gather institutions, innovators and individuals involved in the study and actual conduct of risk assessments for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. We will tackle and showcase, through demonstrations, existing methods, new ideas and good practices, especially in the use of geospatial information and technologies in promoting data integration, processes and data analyses for accurate and efficient assessment of risks.
Presentations on important catalysts for the promotion, adoption and sustainability of innovations for risk assessment and disaster risk reduction, such as policy frameworks, good governance and data standards and infrastructures may be accepted.
Session presenters are encouraged to produce hard or soft copies of brochures or any material for distribution to other participants. It will be beneficial for all if presenters will relate current studies with the Global Risk Assessment Framework, which the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction is developing. Session participants are in turn requested to provide feedback and comments to improve results of researches and existing technologies or innovations.
