What is Understanding Risk?
UR is a global community of nearly 10,000 experts and practitioners active in the creation, communication, and use of disaster risk information. Members share knowledge and experience, collaborate, and discuss innovations and best practice in risk assessment. The community convenes every two years at UR Forums – five-day events that highlight groundbreaking work, facilitate nontraditional partnerships, and showcase new technical know-how in disaster risk identification. If you want to know what countries have been represented and which organizations have attended UR since 2016, check out the list here.
Global Forums consist of two parts: 1) the Main Conference, and 2) Side Event days. The Main Conference are exciting days of crowdsourced technical sessions and plenaries, entertainment and the expo. Day 1 also features the Opening Ceremony, a keynote speaker, and a UR staple–Ignites where technical session leads pitch their session to the audience.
Side events consist of workshops, training sessions and stakeholder meetings from UR partners. Organizations can apply for a space during these days, where in the past over 50 events have occurred.
