Call for application: International workshop on modelling risk and resilience in human and natural systems
May 6-8th, 2019 at the University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland
Scope of the workshop
Natural disasters consist of human and natural components that are interconnected. While progress has been made to mitigate and adapt to natural hazards, much of the existing research lacks interdisciplinary approaches that equally consider both natural and social processes. More importantly, this lack of integration between approaches remains a major challenge in developing disaster risk management plans for communities. The proposed early career researcher workshop on Modelling risk and resilience in human and natural systems aims to:
- Establish the progress made in modelling risk and resilience to natural hazards,
- Identify remaining challenges, and
- Discover opportunities for future research.
To achieve this, we are bringing together international researchers engaged in modelling risk and resilience to natural hazards. The result of the workshop will be a commentary article, in a scientific journal, based on the findings of presentations, group discussions, and post-workshop engagement of workshop participants.
