49th Annual Natural Hazards Workshop


14. Juli 2024 - 18. Juli 2024    


At this year’s 49th Annual Natural Hazards Workshop, we will take stock of advances in the hazards and disaster field as we share strategies for creatively communicating about risk.The 2024 Natural Hazards Workshop will feature thematic sessions that explore questions such as:

  • What have we learned about shifting risks from wildfires, floods, hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, drought, heat, and other natural hazards?
  • What steps are institutions and decision-makers taking to ensure that diverse members of the public receive, trust, and can act on risk information?
  • How are hazards and disaster professionals responding to the spread of misinformation?
  • What new partnerships have been formed to improve disaster risk research and clarify best practices for equitable risk communication?
  • What creative, multi-directional approaches are being used to communicate about different phases of the disaster cycle?
  • Are hazard-specific alerts and warnings—as well as broader risk communication campaigns—reaching intended audiences, creating desired behavioral responses, and ultimately reducing disaster impacts?
