IRDR ICoE on Vulnerability and Resilience Metricsis is co-organizing a workshop on the dynamics of risk and vulnerability with the University of Salzburg, EURAC Research and UNU-EHS. This workshop will be held at University of Salzburg, from Wednesday, 21. September (late afternoon) to Friday, 23. September 2016 (mid afternoon). The thematic scope of this INQUMUS workshop is on scenarios relevant for assessments of risk and vulnerabilities. Data gaps regarding the environmental and socioeconomic drivers of risk and vulnerability combined with methodological challenges hamper the development of such scenarios.
The workshop currently calls for abstracts. Interested participants should send an abstract (max 400 words). discussing the following issues:
Motivation for application and relevance to guiding questions listed above
Methods applied in scenario development
Achievements and challenges
Scientific merit and insights
Note: IRDR International Centres of Excellence (ICoEs), established through the IRDR Scientific Committee (SC) and the relevant National Committee (NC), will provide regional and research foci for the IRDR programme. ICoE research programmes will embody an integrated approach to disaster risk reduction that directly contributes to the ICSU/IRDR Science Plan for Integrated Research on Disaster Risk and its objectives, as well as the IRDR Strategic Plan (2013-2017).
