International Disaster and Risk Conference (IDRC) Davos 2008
Public-private partnership Key for integral risk management and climate change adaptation
25-29 August 2008, Davos, Switzerland
After the successful launching of the series of IDRCs with the first global conference IDRC Davos 2006, held in Davos, Switzerland in late August 2006 and with the first regional conference hold in Harbin, China, the 2008 global conference will be held again in Davos, Switzerland.
IDRC Davos 2008 will address global problems and attract participants from all over the globe. The conference will take an integrated, multidisciplinary approach at addressing the different kinds of risks affecting society today, risks which might be far beyond any particular stakeholders capacity to control and that may adversely affect multiple parties across geographic borders, sectors and industries.
The international wildland fire community is encouraged to submit abstracts to the conference organization, which is supported by the Global Fire Monitoring Center.
