You asked and we listened! Thanks to the recommendations from the independent UR evaluation, we are pleased to invite you to a planning meeting for the 2018 Understanding Risk Forum (UR2018). This is your chance to shape the fifth global forum into another inspirational, innovative and interactive event.

This will be a day filled with creativity and ‘unconference’ activities to bring out the best ideas for UR2018. We need your brain power to:

  • Identify emerging content/themes
  • Gather innovative ways of structuring conferences
  • Formulate a theme for UR2018
  • Discuss partnership opportunities

GFDRR is pleased to host this one-day planning event in Washington, DC on May 4, 2017.

We invite anyone who is interested in attending to please RSVP by Friday, March 31st, using the RSVP link here. If you are unable to attend but would still like to contribute to the ideas and discussion, please let us know your ideas by Friday, April 14th using this form. We will additionally set up a Webex for a period of time during the day so that those remotely can participate and share their ideas. If you would like information on the Webex, please use the RSVP link.

Please note that we regrettably are unable to sponsor anyone to attend the meeting.

More logistics information will be provided in April to those who register.
