Last week, the 9th Congress of the Union of European Geographical Societies (EUGEO) took place in Barcelona. Our colleague Ronja Winkhardt-Enz participated in the session “Integrated Disaster Risk Management (IDRM) for a Resilient Future: Geographical linkages of social, spatial, and temporal dimensions”, which was organised, moderated and co-designed by INCREASE partners. Ronja Winkhardt-Enz presented the work of DKKV, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030 (SFDRR) and the related tasks of the INCREASE project.

This includes the development of advanced integrative solutions and measures for disaster risk and resilience, including options for contributing to the Sendai Framework reporting. Therefore, DKKV is conducting an INCREASE study in collaboration with TH Köln on the feasibility of alternative and supporting indicators for monitoring the SFDRR’s objectives on resilience, recovery and transformation of society and critical infrastructure.

If you are familiar with the Sendai Framework and alternative indicators for resilience measurement, we invite you to participate in our short survey.
