European Civil Protection Forum 2024

European Civil Protection Forum 2024

What are the synergies between disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation? How to integrate multi-hazard risk, climate change adaptation, and nature-based solutions to enhance EU Disaster Resilience Goals (DRG) implementation? Do binding regulations improve alignment between civil protection and climate strategies? What scientific support do policymakers need?

These questions will guide the workshop “Reducing Risks Together: Bridging Disaster-Resilience & Climate-Adaptation Strategies” on aligning strategies for disaster risk reduction and climate adaptation, fostering discussions among policymakers, scientists, and professionals.

Short presentations will give an impulse to the discussion. Professor Daniel Sempere-Torres will shed light on the importance of aligning disaster risk reduction with climate change risk assessment and adaptation. Professor Silvia Torresan will showcase examples of how climate change risks have been integrated in disaster risk assessment within the MYRIAD-EU project and how it is relevant for the DRG.

Following the presentations, discussions in smaller groups will focus on the five DRGs: anticipation, preparation, alert, response, and security. Each group will address specific questions to assess, adapt, and generate new ideas. Results will complement stakeholder consultations in pilot regions from CLIMAAX and MYRIAD-EU projects.

The workshop will take place during the eighth European Civil Protection Forum on June 5th at Tour & Taxis in Brussels, Belgium. Serving as a pivotal gathering for the civil protection community, this event fosters knowledge exchange, collaboration, and networking among stakeholders across European civil protection.
