Understanding Risk Forum
“Producing actionable information”

Every 2 years, The World Bank Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) convenes the UR Forum, a five-day conference designed to showcase best practices and the latest technical advances in disaster. Previous meetings brought together over 500 experts and practitioners from more than 80 countries in Washington DC (2010) and Cape Town (2012). The third biennial Forum (UR2014) organised in partnership with UCL’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy division, was held at ExCeL London and on campus at UCL. Over 800 international participants attended far outstripping attendance levels at previous forums. TFI Group was appointed to support the successful delivery of the conference.
