International emergency mechanism and disaster risk reduction

International Conference on “International emergency mechanism and disaster risk reduction”, Warsaw, 15.09.2022

The main objective of the conference is to exchange good practices and experiences in the scope of international mechanisms for prevention and response on crisis situations and disasters as well as to initiate a discussion on improving disaster risk reduction. 

COVID-19 pandemic, war in Ukraine and hybrid threats indicate a need to strengthen international cooperation to cope with crisis situations and disasters with global reach. Co-existing phenomena and cascading effects influence on particular countries and international organisations (UN, NATO, EU). Thus, close cooperation in disaster risk reduction is so important to be better prepared, to more effectively respond to hazards, to limit relevant consequences more comprehensively and efficiently and to recover societies affected in the direction of ‘build back better’. 

The conference will be held stationary and online.
