Understanding Risk - UR Europe Forum

Date: 27 November 2019 - 29 November 2019
Location: Bucharest, Romania

Venue: Palace of Parliament, Bucharest Romania

Understanding Risk is an initiative of the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), part of the World Bank Group
Devastating wildfires, earthquakes and floods in Europe in recent years and a growing recognition of how climate change and aging infrastructure and buildings will exacerbate risk, have highlighted a need to accelerate action towards the identification and management of disaster and climate risks. The Understanding Risk Europe forum will provide a platform for the public and private sector, local, national and regional institutions, non-governmental organizations, academia and media to build partnerships and to share knowledge and best practices.
