The NEEDS conference 2023 aims to dive into changing conditions and approaches for risk perceptions, risk communication, preparedness, prevention and adaptation, within the broader scope of disaster resilience. What are the considerations needed for e.g. civil engagement, informal procedures, institutional learning, technological innovation/intervention/accessibility, reconstruction, sustainable risk prevention, effective communication?
We welcome research from all fields which can bring discussions to these topics. We invite scholars, decision-makers, practitioners and other interested stakeholders to join the discussions! This year the conference will take place in the Netherlands and is hosted by the Centre for Disaster Resilience of the University of Twente and is organized in collaboration with research departments related to disaster science in the Netherlands from the VU Amsterdam, Erasmus University, Groningen University, and Leiden University.
