International Disaster and Risk Conference IDRC Davos (Organizer: Global Risk Forum GRF)

International Disaster and Risk Conference (IDRC), a world conference on integrated risk management, has been held every two years in Davos, Switzerland since 2006. Academic experts, private corporations, United Nations organizations, NGOs and other related organizations gather and discuss a wide range of risks. It is normally held for 5 days with approximately 500 to 800 participants. In 2015, IDRC concluded an agreement with IRIDeS, Tohoku University, so that “World Bosai Forum/ IDRC 2017 in Sendai” will be held in the year IDRC is not held in Davos. IDRC and World Bosai Forum will cooperate with each other in conference planning and PR.
