Natural Disaster Prevention - ETIA talk

Avalanches, floods, earthquakes, storms, droughts and extreme weather are unfortunately not unknown natural disasters that (re)occur on an increasing level in Austria. Against the background of climate change and global warming, the discussion on how to prevent or - in the disastrous occurence of such an event - how to manage natural disaster situations, is as pressing one as ever.

Therefore this first panel discussion on "Natural Disaster Prevention" should highlight Austria`s efforts towards disaster control and natural disaster prevention on the occasion of the International Day on Natural Disaster Prevention, Friday 13th of October 2017. - from
