THE II CONFERENCE
DISASTER RISK REDUCTION
15th-16th October 2015, Warsaw
We are very pleased to inform you that the II Conference Disaster Risk Reduction will be held in Warsaw on the 15th and 16th of October under the honorary patronage of the Masovian Voivode Jacek Kozłowski and Rector Magnificus Professor Maciej Pałys of the Warsaw University with contribution of the Association of Polish Hydrologists, the Association of Polish Climatologists, and the Association of Polish Geomorphologists.
The aim of the conference is to share knowledge and experience among theoreticians and practitioners and identify the key problems of the topic with particular consideration of social aspects and uses for new analytical methods. We also intend to join the International Day for Natural Disaster Reduction. The conference will cover the following issues: extreme phenomena in the changing environment, natural disaster risk management, social and economic aspects of natural disasters, reduction of the effects of natural disasters in local and regional solutions, and the role of the state and civic responsibility. A natural disaster is a phenomenon caused by a natural hazard.
