On until July: Public Lecture Series ‘International Civil Protection and Disaster Risk Reduction’

Worldwide, people are threatened by the consequences of climate change such as floods, droughts and storms. This applies in particular to people in the world‘s poorest countries, in coastal areas or in mountain regions. But also across Europe and in Germany, natural events with destructive effects such as storms, heavy rains, floods and landslides have led to high losses in recent decades, and the trend is rising.


Against this background, the Department of Geography of the University of Bonn and the City of Bonn, jointly with numerous resident organizations, have launched a public lecture series entitled “International Civil Protection and Disaster Risk Reduction”, providing some insight into the practical work of the United Nations, federal ministries and authorities, businesses, academia and NGOs in Bonn and in the region.

The lectures for the summer term 2019 will either be held in German or in English respectively and will again be taking place at alternating venues until July.
