Increasing regions' resilience to flood and draught - on the ICAR 2018 agenda

20 September 2018 — Daniela GHETU
In the context of the increasing frequency and intensity of meteorological events as a result of climate change, improving resilience to natural disaster risks is a primary objective, which requires the cooperation of all the interested entities - institutions of public administration, associations specialized in risk analysis and assessment, insurance companies, consultancy bodies, and non-profit organizations, etc.

To answer the necessity of building cohesion among all stakeholders, providing more information is the first step. This why, complementing the ICAR 2018 debates, the Business Development Group, a member of the NAIAD project consortium in Romania, together with XPRIMM Publications, have the honor of inviting you to the first seminar organized in Romania on "Gathering forces to improve resilience to growing weather-related risks: Nature-based solutions for catastrophic risk management - opportunities for the insurance sector."

A team of exquisite speakers will animate the workshop's debates:
  • Elena LOPEZ, ICATALIST, Spain
  • Roxane MARCHALE, CCR, France
  • Florentina NANU, BDGroup
  • Albert SCRIECIU, GeoEcoMar, Romania
  • Prof Mark MULLIGAN, Kings college, London
  • Andy BORD, CEO, Flood Re, UK
  • Nicoleta RADU, CEO, PAID, Romania
  • Dr. Laurent MARESCOT, Sr. Director, RMS, Switzerland
The seminar aims to stimulate interinstitutional dialogue as a basis for developing cooperation models for the practical implementation of innovative solutions. Combining the need for risk mitigation with other economic and social benefits, we can achieve solutions that support the interests of all parties up to the level of human society.

The main objective of the NAIAD project - implemented under Horizon 2020 of the European Union - is to promote the use of green solutions for flood and drought risk management and to deliver replicable implementation methodologies tested in eight demonstration sites in different locations across Europe. The project has 21 partners with different profiles and expertise from 11 countries.

The event will take place on Tuesday, October 9th, 3 pm at the Sheraton Hotel, Nevada Hall.

Participation to the workshop is free of charge, limited seats available.
