European Civil Protection Forum 2018: “Civil Protection in a Changing Risk Landscape”

05/03/2018 to 06/03/2018

The 6th European Civil Protection Forum "Civil Protection in a Changing Risk Landscape" will take place in Brussels on 5-6 March, 2018. The Forum is the largest recurring public event on European cooperation in the field of civil protection and is organised every two years by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations.

This year, the Forum is expected to bring together more than 400 representatives from the civil protection and disaster risk management communities, including governments, European Union institutions, UN agencies, academia, and other stakeholders to share experiences and discuss ways of strengthening the Union Civil Protection Mechanism.

The discussions will be structured around four policy axes:

  • Strengthening Europe's preparedness;
  • Simplifying European collective response;
  • Scaling up prevention and
  • Fostering resilience and cooperation with Europe's neighbourhood.
