Losses of human lives and economic losses from natural disasters have increased dramatically in the last decades. Especially developing regions are highly vulnerable to natural disasters. The objective of this conference, similar to the previous events, is to contribute to the development and to the implementation of an integrated disaster risk management approach with the emphasis on sharing the experiences obtained under different cultural and socio-economic settings. The addressed audience should include scientists from different disaster related disciplines as well as practitioners, representatives of NGOs and policy makers from different regions.
The reduction of escalating losses from natural disasters is essential for sustainable development. Considering that the poorest groups of the society suffer disproportionally from natural hazards IDRiM strategies have to be promoted which contribute to a socially balanced development.
