Under the theme “Integrative Risk Management - Science and technology to strengthen the post 2015 framework", the IDRC Davos 2014 will gather again over 1000 participants including risk management experts, practitioners, scientists, key players from civil society, Non-Governmental Organisations and the private sector.

The IDRC Davos 2014 will address the numerous interconnected, complex and emerging risks today's societies are faced with. Environmental, technical, social and economic risks are often closely linked and can result in successive impact. For example the 2011 earthquake in Japan, resulted in a disastrous tsunami, creating nuclear meltdown at its key facilities. Risks and disasters explored at the IDRC Davos 2014 include, amongst others, natural hazards, failures of critical infrastructure and services, pandemics, acts of terrorism and financial crises. All can severely impact and influence human beings and collective societies.

Join us in Davos! Abstracts submission and registration are open now!
