Integrating Disaster Risk Data in Policy: the Copernicus Emergency Management Service Annual Conference 2023
Join the Disaster Risk Reduction Day (Friday 13 October 2023) to learn about the Joint Research Centre's (JRC) and Copernicus work on crisis management and the risks and opportunities of the future.
Come and learn how data - on droughts, wildfires, floods, emergency mapping, population exposure - from the Copernicus Emergency Management Service (CEMS) operated by the JRC can support a wide range of policies and help build disaster risk management strategies.
- During the morning, JRC experts will show how CEMS has been delivering early-warning and monitoring insights on floods, wildfires, and droughts.
The morning session will be webstreamed. The link will be available when the event starts.
- In the afternoon, practical sessions will provide an opportunity for attendees to learn how to use CEMS dashboards to extract personalised data that suits their needs.
It is compulsory to register in order to participate in the practical afternoon sessions.

You're invited to a unique event showcasing how the Copernicus Emergency Management Service (CEMS) helps raise awareness of natural hazards, contribute to disaster risk strategies or help strengthen policy.
While crafted with policy officers in mind, this event will also offer valuable information for media, researchers, practitioners and others looking for ways to integrate disaster risk management (DRM) data in their work activities and justify its importance.
During interactive morning workshops JRC experts will show how CEMS has been collaborating with EU DGs, Member and Participating States - and the international community - by delivering early-warning and monitoring insights on floods, wildfires, and droughts.
They will also share how detailed, high-resolution emergency maps are helping to assess risks, prepare and react to disasters like earthquakes, cyclones, and landslides, among others. And how CEMS systems help identify hazard-vulnerable populations and support resilient urban planning.
Guest speakers will also join to share how they have/are benefiting from CEMS products/services.
In the afternoon, you'll be able to join hands-on workshops and learn how to source, personalise and use CEMS data.
The morning session is open to all via webstreaming, while it is compulsory to register to attend the afternoon session.
