Today's Hazards: Reducing Tomorrow's Impacts
CRHNet 2013 First Circular
|The 10th annual CRHNet Symposium examines vulnerabilities
when cross-sectoral dependencies are aggravated by factors such as aging infrastructure, climate change and rapidly
shifting social landscapes. The focus will be on dependencies that can be mitigated in domains such as policy development,
community resilience programs as well as in the fields of emergency management and response. The symposium will
offer progressive and innovative solutions for practitioners before, during and after an emergency.
