Intro

During the fourth meeting of the Knowledge Network Preparatory Working Group (PWG 4, 16 March 2021), the MS/PS welcomed the idea of having DRMKC as the core element of the UCP Knowledge Network Science Pillar and requested to be provided with detailed information about the DRMKC tools and components relevant for its implementation.

The “Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre Information Day” scheduled on the 15th of June 2021 aims at providing an overview of the operational services, methods and data that can support MS/PS in their work in Disaster Risk Management. The material that will be presented has been selected from a wide range of tools, datasets and methods available at the Joint Research Centre and tailored to the needs of MS/PS who were consulted on the format and on the content of the Information Day during the fifth meeting of the Knowledge Network Preparatory Working Group (PWG 5, 26 April 2021).

For the additional components, and for other tools available at the JRC, more dedicated training events and workshops will be organized during the course of year.
