EFG contributes to Science for Disaster Risk Management 2020


“Science for Disaster Risk Management 2020 Acting Today, Protecting Tomorrow” has officially been launched by the EU’s Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre on 23 March 2021.

EFG actively contributed to the report through its Panel of Experts on Natural Hazards and Climate Change.

The report is a collaborative effort by more than 300 experts on disaster risk, coming from different sectors and disciplines, that worked for more than 2 years together to present the consequences of disasters on various assets at risk (population, economic sectors, critical infrastructures, ecosystem services and cultural heritage). Studying the impacts helps in managing risk after a disaster, guiding the response and facilitating recovery, and in preparing measures to prevent, mitigate and prepare for future events, by supporting risk prediction and the planning of measures to manage risk.

EFG contributed in particular to chapter 2.2 on the Risk Management Planning.
