ROADMAP2 project: Recording of the 1st Webinar

In the framework of the ROADMAP2 project, a series of Webinars will be held with international experts on Disaster Risk Management (DRM) issues, with the objective of discussing relevant topics on the management of various phases of risks to find good practices.
The first webinar, entitled “Practices of Foresight in Disaster Risk Management planning” was held on 25th January 2024, 10.00-12.00 CET.
The aim of the webinar is to provide a forum for exchange on and assessment of DRM and civil protection actors’ practices in using foresight techniques to overcome the uncertainty and complexity of factors determining the outcome of future disasters. The webinar will more specifically explore the following questions:
1. What kind of foresight practices are used by disasters risk management and civil protection actors?
2. What has made these foresight practices particularly useful in terms of anticipating and mitigating disaster risks?
