    The JRC and the Met Office are jointly organising a seminar on ‘Disaster Risk Management: Science for Policy and Operations’, which will address two key areas; the use of science in risk management, as input to the planning phase, and to the preparedness phase through Early Warning Systems (EWS). The first seminar in 2012 identified a small number of targeted areas where partnerships for knowledge sharing could benefit national and European level services to give positive impacts for communities at risk.

    The JRC is launching the Global Human Settlement Workshop Series as a biannual workshop to promote a global observatory of human settlements. This three day event will bring together institutions that are already contributing to the Global Human Settlement Layer (GHSL) initiative, analysts that are using the settlement information in their models, or are interested to add it in their toolbox, scientists working on global settlement analysis and remote sensing and institutional stakeholders supporting programmes related to global or regional human settlement information.
