FORUM ON
NATURAL DISASTERS
AN ANNUAL MEETING FOR THOSE OF US WHO WANT TO REDUCE THE RISK
AND IMPACT OF NATURAL DISASTERS AND NATURAL HAZARDS
Welcome to the 2014 Forum on Natural Disasters!
Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Adaptation
– Where Research Meets Practice
• What knowledge does Sweden need in order
to be able to manage natural disasters, natural
hazards and climate adaptation?
• How can research contribute to these efforts?
• How can we benefit from international cooperation?
For the third year in a row, the Forum on Natural
Disasters is being held. It is a forum for exchanging
knowledge and experiences and for stimulating
discussions related to natural disasters, disaster
risk reduction, and climate change adaptation in
Sweden.
This year the forum has been expanded to two
days. The first day will have a national focus and
will be held in Swedish. The second day will have
a more international perspective and will be held
in English. You are welcome to participate one or
both days.
During these two days there will be a variety of
activities including presentations of current research results, commissioned public reports, and public
sector development projects as well as small group
discussions and networking opportunities in the
exhibition area.
Together we hope to be able to identify and discuss the opportunities and challenges that Sweden
faces today and is expected to encounter in the
future.
The forum is aimed at policy makers and practitioners working in the public and private sectors as
well as researchers and graduate students. The
target group also includes those holding political
offices at the local, regional and central levels.
The forum is scheduled for 18 – 19 November
2014, and is being organised by CNDS, the official
network of the Swedish National Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction driven by the Swedish Civil
Contingencies Agency (MSB), MSB’s Research
Management Section, and the National Knowledge Centre for Climate Change Adaptation at the
Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute
(SMHI).
You are warmly welcome to register at this time!
Please circulate this invitation to your colleagues
and others who may be interested in participating.
When and where?
18 – 19 November 2014, at the Swedish National Defence College in Stockholm. Registration,
additional information about the speakers and the

Participation is free of charge and includes
refreshments and lunch on both days. The activities on the first day of the forum will be conducted in Swedish and in English on the second day
