Highlights from the International Disaster and Risk Conference
DRI International was a proud sponsor of this year’s International Disaster and Risk Conference in Davos, Switzerland, held Aug. 24-28.
“The IDRC is a critical event for the global movement for disaster risk reduction,” said DRI Executive Director Chloe Demrovsky, who also presented at the event. “The outcomes of the event will be a terrific addition to the discourse leading up to the launch of the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction (HFA2) in Sendai next year.”
One outcome announced at the conference: a crisis and communications wiki and online discussion forum, free platforms provided by the Public Empowerment Policies for Crisis Management (PEP). It’s an open space for professionals to share information on effective crisis communications, and make it widely available for public use.
