We have decided to organize a 1-day symposium, a sort of mini IDRC Davos 2018 Conference on Risk, Resilience and Disaster Management with international top experts in risk and disaster management. The symposium informs first hand on the Sulawesi Earthquake and Tsunami which hit Indonesia on the 29 September 2018, presents some new insights into the macro-economic analysis of risk reduction measures, the sustainability and resilience of engineered systems, the role of the media in Japan and Switzerland in times of disasters, and advocates for a changing paradigm in hybrid threats and their risk management. A Panel Discussion shall outline the needs in science, education, training and public awareness rising for a risk and resilience based disaster risk management.
