German Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction 2022

Covid, Conflict as well as the the Climate and Environmental Crisis are high on both – international and national - Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) agendas. More than ever, the benefit of increasing investment in DRR and Disaster Preparedness becomes tangible for everyone. Crisis are becoming increasingly complex which means that crisis preparedness and management also increases in complexity.

But are we prepared for the challenges ahead? What kind of transformation is needed to unlock DRR options in dealing with complexity of today’s crisis?

Expect exciting discussions and exchanges with international and national experts at this year's German Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction.

If possible, the conference will be partly held in-person in addition to virtual sessions.


25 – 27 October 2022


Access via or in person


The call for sessions is open. Please make your proposals here until July 20, 2022. We are looking forward to your participation!
