Andrew Maskrey, Senior Coordinator for the UNISDR Global Assessment Report on Disaster Reduction - Keynote Speaker
Tom Mitchell, Head of Climate Change, Environment and Forests - Speaker
This one-day conference aims to create an environment in which the UK ‘disasters community’, whether from private sector, academia, non-governmental organisations or government, can learn about existing initiatives, share their work and discover better ways to coordinate and collaborate with each other.
This event will profile research capabilities and strengths in disaster reduction and climate resilience; bring a critical focus onto prevention and mitigation efforts and identify opportunities for improving the evidence base for the UK Government’s current Emergency Response Review and other international development policy initiatives.
Speakers include Andrew Maskrey, Senior Coordinator for the UNISDR Global Assessment Report on Disaster Reduction (keynote speaker) plus other international experts and key figures from UK government, research bodies and humanitarian organisations.
