UNISDR to hold 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC Davos 2014

“Integrative Risk Management – The role of science, technology & practice”
24 – 28 August 2014 | Davos, Switzerland


The International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC Davos 2014 is organised by GRF Davos in close cooperation with the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR).

IDRC Davos 2014 attempts to find solutions to today’s challenges by managing risks, reducing disasters and adapting to climate change. Focusing on a multi-sectors, multi-stakeholders  and multi-disciplines approach, IDRC helps to build stronger ties with adequate public-private partnership models among risk management communities and sectors, enabling a move towards a truly integrative way of thinking about disasters and risks. The outcomes will be presented at the UN World Conference WCDRR in Sendai, Japan in March 2015 and aim to influence the post 2015 agenda such as the Post-2015 Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction (HFA2), the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or the successor of the UNFCCC Kyoto Protocol.

Additionally, GRF Davos is running two contests which will be launched during its 5th International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC Davos 2014 in Davos Switzerland:

  • Short Film Competition @ IDRC LunchCINEMA
