International Scientific Conference on International Emergency Mechanisms and Disaster Risk Reduction
The Main School of Fire Service, Warsaw, Poland will organise the hybrid International Scientific Conference on International Emergency Mechanisms and Disaster Risk Reduction on 15 September 2022.
Scope and objectives
The main objective of the conference is to exchange good practices and experiences in the scope of international mechanisms for prevention and response on crisis situations and disasters as well as to initiate a discussion on improving disaster risk reduction.
COVID-19 pandemic, war in Ukraine and hybrid threats indicate a need to strengthen international cooperation to cope with crisis situations and disasters with global reach. Co-existing phenomena and cascading effects influence on particular countries and international organisations (UN, NATO, EU). Thus, close cooperation in disaster risk reduction is so important to be better prepared, to more effectively respond to hazards, to limit relevant consequences more comprehensively and efficiently and to recover societies affected in the direction of 'build back better'.
The conference will be a platform of exchange for ideas, research results and solutions which connect theory and practice of disaster risk reduction in the field of emergency mechanisms. An ambition is to develop existing and to initiate new networks comprising decision makers, public administration, public services, armed forces, academia, non-governmental organisations and local disaster risk reduction leaders to be more flexible and prepared for XXI century safety and security challenges.
