3rd International Conference on Risk Analysis and Crisis Response

May 22-25, 2011

The world faces more insecurities and challenges than ever.  Just recently human kind witnessed the worst oil spill in history, the most devastating monsoon in 80 years, unprecedented wildfires in Russia originated by the hottest July ever recorded, and a massive 7.0 magnitude earthquake devastated Haiti in January. 

These and many other catastrophes the world has confronted are redefining the way countries approach disaster and crises management. For instance, the tsunami in the Indian Ocean in 2004 enticed 25 nations to develop the Tsunami Warning System (TWS) in the Pacific; similarly the global financial crisis that started in 2007 and still looms on the horizon has forced new banking regulations and financial measures, and the earthquake that struck Chile in February of 2010 has had implications that affected building codes and standards around the globe.

Along with natural disasters, the world encounters shadows of deadly diseases, food shortages, soaring energy prices, acts of violence, and wars. All of these threats pose remarkable risks at various scales. Coping with them requires the collaborative efforts of scientists, policy makers, and first responders.

RACR are biennial international conferences launched by the Risk Analysis Council of China Association for Disaster Prevention. RACR Conferences aim to provide an international forum for specialists and stakeholders in risk analysis, crisis response, and disaster prevention. RACR-2011 will be the third conference in this series, following the successful RACR-2007 in Shanghai and RACR-2009 in Beijing.
