[Courtesy Announcement] Royal Geographical Society with IBG Event: Compound Risk: Dynamic Exposure and Vulnerability

Starts in:
17 September 2021

The Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers (IBG) in their next Disaster Risk Management Professional Practice Group (DRM-PPG) fireside chat, invites a range of experts on the topic of compounding risk, with a particular focus on dynamic exposure and vulnerability.

A key priority for action in the 2015 Sendai Framework is access to multi-hazard early warning systems to better anticipate and act in the face of consecutive or co-occurring hazards. This requires advances in our understanding of hazard interactions (e.g., earthquake triggered landslides) but also dynamic exposure (e.g., evacuating to higher ground in a tsunami may increase exposure to landslides) and vulnerability (e.g., building damage after an earthquake may make a structure more vulnerable to subsequent hazards). This requires working across disciplines and with policymakers. The fireside chat event will bring together experts across a range of disciplines to talk about their work in this area, with reflections on opportunities and challenges for the future.
