EC-JRC has now released the final version of its report "Science for Disaster Risk Management 2017: Knowing Better and Losing Less".
This 550-page report summarizes the state of science relevant to disaster risk management from a European perspective, with the aim to encourage potential synergies across disciplines, and to identify gaps in scientific knowledge for future research. The preparation of the report succeeded in pulling together a network of 273 contributors from 26 mostly European countries and 172 organizations. It has been endorsed by 11 European Commission Services and has been officially released at the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction in May 2017.
