Canadian Risk and Hazards Network Symposium

The Anatomy of Disaster Resilience:
Searching for new treatments to enhance mitigation, planning, response and recovery

12th Annual CRHNet Symposium

Coast Plaza Hotel, Calgary

This symposium intends to deconstruct disaster resilience through a multifaceted discussion of the factors that contribute to disaster, and how these factors could be addressed through the mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery phases.

Disasters are never simple occurrences, nor are they brought about by a single most-visible agent. Improved understanding of ‘hidden’ components – including the making of vulnerability and resilience - and how their interplay contributes to these complex events would enable a better design and implementation of the various tasks of emergency management.

The program of the 12th Symposium includes a field trip, discussion groups, plenary and targeted sessions. It will appeal to people from many disciplines, sectors (private, academia, government, community, and voluntary), and operational level (local to international).
