Environmental Risk – Assessing and Managing Multiple Risks in a Changing World

Roskilde University

November 16, 2015 – November 17, 2015

Technological developments over the past century have improved the quality of life for many. However, in combination with exponential population growth, human developments have negatively impacted many of the world’s ecosystems through over-exploitation of natural resources, pollution, and changes to the climate system.

The conference consists of a two day program with platform and poster presentations and encourages active participation through break-out sessions and scientific discussions among invited speakers and participants.

The purpose of the conference is to evaluate and discuss the development of cross-cutting methods to assess and manage different types of risks, both natural hazards and anthropogenic and the societal issues associated with those risks.

Overall the conference will cover both Risk Assessment and Risk Management. The conference will cover the following main topics:

  • Geospheric Hazards (e.g., volcanic eruptions; earth quakes)
  • Environmental Change (e.g., hydrological extremes; changing water cycles)
  • Anthropogenic Hazards (e.g., from industry and agriculture)
  • Societal Issues (e.g., risk perception; communication)





The workshop will be hald at the SCANDIC hotel in ROSKILDE. Ved Ringen 2, Roskilde, Denmark.
