On 22 and 23 April 2024, the annual German Conference for Disaster Risk Reduction, organised by the German Red Cross, will take place. This year’s theme is “On the edge? Disaster risk reduction in fragile times”.

This follows several years of crises in Europe, which have shown that climate change, health crises, social and geopolitical tensions are increasing and mutually reinforcing each other. The symposium aims to serve as a place for networking and cooperation in order to make societies more crisis-proof and resilient in the future.

If you would like to contribute to the symposium, you can submit your proposals for workshops and sessions here until 19 January 2024.

The German Red Cross is looking for workshops and sessions that address new findings, projects and measures and deal with solutions for disaster risk management in this area of conflict.
