Since our formula of keynote speakers and workshops was highly appreciated by the attendees of our past conferences, we are continuing on the same path. Our ambition this year is to provide even more participation during interactive workshops since this remains one of the main suggestions by the attendees of past editions. The aim of these workshops is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in risk management, crisis management, risk communication, crisis communication or any other domain related to risk and crisis.
The climate change adaptation and the higher frequency and financial consequences of disasters, are amongst the factors that boost the utilization of the concept of resilience way beyond its original scientific definition.
Our conference programme in Amsterdam consists of lectures by international keynote speakers, but we also make room for various workshops by CIP members. These six workshop were reviewed and selected from the proposals that we received as a result of our Call for Workshops.
In the past, traditional approach to risk communication has failed in many cases resulting in significant stakeholder unease and stress. This talk will focus on alternative approaches of bringing stakeholders on board in projects where risk is a significant driver for decisions.
