The IRDR Programme, in partnership with the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST), will host the 2nd IRDR Conference, under the theme "Integrated Disaster Risk Science: A Tool for Sustainability" from 7 to 9 June 2014 at the Beijing International Convention Center (BICC) in Beijing, China.

The Conference will place emphasis on the importance of science as a tool to address hazard risks and issues of sustainable development.

This will be accomplished through a series of plenaries and break-out sessions dealing with the challenges of implementing integrated disaster risk research, inter-organisational collaboration, and policy, as well as the interaction with sustainable development activities. The sessions will address the range of environmental hazards, vulnerability, and sustainability, in both global and local contexts.

IRDR Conference 2014 will bring together leading experts in the field of disaster risk reduction from all academic and professional specialities to help create a global IRDR community, and bring continued worldwide attention to the IRDR programme.
