Conferences and Events
CRSCAD regularly hosts international conferences and workshops that bring together post-disaster stakeholders including representatives from
- humanitarian and disaster relief organizations
- the nonprofit and non-governmental sectors
- first responders
- students of global post-disaster studies
A key focus is always on the full participation of vulnerable populations in planning for disaster response and mitigation as well as post–disaster rebuilding.
- people with disabilities
- the elderly
- the poor
These events provide for an exchange of ideas, best practices, and lessons learned and serve to build a worldwide community that is better informed and enabled to prepare for, respond to, and finally rebuild sustainable communities after disasters.
