Día Internacional para la Reducción de Riesgos de Desastres 13 Oct

La Comisión Europea publica un artículo sobre la estrategia europea para la adaptación al Cambio Climático, aprovechando el Día Internacional para la reducción del Riesgo de Desastres (13 de octubre).

El JRC (Joint Research Centre), centro de investigación de la Comisión Europea, puso en marcha hace un par de años el DRMKC (Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre: https://drmkc.jrc.ec.europa.eu/ ).

Este Centro de Conocimiento para la Gestión de Riesgos de Desastres, integra el conocimiento existente de tipo científico multi-disciplinar en este ámbito y co-desarrolla soluciones innovadoras para las necesidades actuales de la UE. Las actividades del EC-DRMKC facilitan el análisis y traducción de los datos complejos de carácter científico en información útil y proporciona avisos con evidencia científica para las políticas de Gestión de riesgos de desastres. Entre las herramientas disponibles se incluyen: Index for Risk Management (INFORM GRI), Risk Data Hub (GIS web plat.), Science for DRM series, Projects Explorer, Epidemic Intelligence from Open Sources (EIOS) y COVID-19.

 

The International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction was started in 1989, after a call by the UN General Assembly (UNGA) for a day to promote a global culture of risk-awareness and disaster reduction. In 2009, the UNGA officially designated 13 October as the date to commemorate the Day.

The Day celebrates how people and communities around the world are reducing their exposure to disasters and raising awareness about the importance of reining in the risks that they face.

The Commission has been at the forefront of better governance in disaster risk reduction. The Union Civil Protection Mechanism shifted early from purely a response mechanism to risk management approach, and the JRC has been supporting it through science and knowledge.

This special issue newsletter from the Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre shows recent projects of the European Commission that directly or indirectly contribute to better governance of disaster risk, through providing better tools, creating science-based guidelines, curating authoritative risk data, and animating multidisciplinary networks.

Preparing for the future: a new climate change adaptation strategy for the EU

As part of the European Green Deal, the European Commission will adopt a new and more ambitious climate change adaptation strategy in Q1 2021. The new strategy will enhance the EU resilience to climate change and disaster impacts, thus fostering the green recovery. It will contribute to achieving the Paris Agreement global goal on adaptation. It will improve awareness and knowledge of climate impacts, reinforce planning and climate risk management, and accelerate action with a focus on solutions, innovation, and implementation. It will build and expand on past experience, and address new priorities – such as reinforced global action, and furthering the integration of adaptation and disaster risk reduction.
