CALL FOR ABSTRACTS - Deadline 31th July 2015 Hydrogeological risk management: gender (women - men) issues and impacts


Conference - Thursday, 29th October 2015, 9:00 -17:30


The Technical Committee for Hydrogeological Risk of the Professional Engineers Board of Rome is organising a one day conference to deal with Hydrogeological Risk Management under a particular perspective.
The Conference aims at involving practitioners in a discussion about gender-sensitive risk management.
Having in mind the importance of economic growth, social equality and environmental sustainability, there is a paramount convergence on the fact that gender matters where major challenges and change factors should be faced, even in water cycle and disaster risk management. Consequently, there is a need for a systematic and comprehensive methodology to gather gender-disaggregated data, as well as to increase the availability of gender-related indicators and methodologies on key topics in disaster risk management and decision making.
Relevant invited speaker will discuss the topic in roundtables and scientific sessions.
Contributions are welcome for three scientific sessions that will focus on the following topics:
  1. Hazard (inundations, flooding, landslides, erosion, sea storms, soil consumption)
  2. Hazard exposure (risk perception, demography, urbanization, accessibility, resilient infrastructures)
  3. Risk management (land use and urban planning, interdisciplinary and inclusive management)
