Workshop Description:

In 2015, the Global Volcano Model network, in partnership with IAVCEI coordinated over 130 volcano scientists representing 86 institutions to document progress in disaster risk reduction for the UN Global Assessment Report (GAR15). The GAR reports, and their associated background reports and resources, provide regular evidence on progress in disaster risk reduction in the form of both qualitative case studies and narratives and a quantitative multiple hazard global risk model. ‘The process contributes directly to greater access to risk information for decision-making, and identifies feasible practices that can be employed at the local, national, regional and international levels.’ (UNDRR). The next full UN Global Assessment Report on progress in disaster risk reduction is due to be released in 2021, so our community has an opportunity to work with partners to document progress towards reducing volcanic risk worldwide and also to identify barriers and challenges that may be hindering progress. 

This 2nd IAVCEI-GVM workshop builds on the outcomes of the 1st workshop and aims to:

• Reflect on current progress in volcanic risk reduction worldwide

• Identify progress/revision of existing materials (e.g. country profiles)

• Discuss ideas and contributions for GAR21

• Discuss key tasks and milestones and key indicators for success

• Discuss ways in which the COV community can contribute to SFDRR progress worldwide
