The Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre (DRMKC) is a part of the Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network’s science pillar, which aims to create synergies between disaster risk management and climate change communities to increase awareness of risks, and prevent disasters while boosting disaster resilience.


Despite global efforts to manage disaster risks, they have become more frequent and severe over recent years, highlighting the need for effective resilience strategies.

The annual seminar explores how to better prepare for the changing risk landscape and increase local, national, and EU resilience through disaster risk management governance, early warning systems, and effective risk communication.

This year’s DRMKC Annual Seminar aims to bring together different voices from policy and research directorates, national authorities, and other stakeholders to define pathways to a more resilient EU, particularly concerning climate and disaster risks. The seminar will co-design solutions and identify collaborative approaches towards implementing the EU’s disaster resilience agenda, from planning and adaptation for climate-resilient cities and regions to vulnerability assessments, horizon scanning, and strategic foresight scenarios.

The event will be web-streamed on 21st November 2023 at the following link:
