IFM Workshop in Thun, Switzerland
F2F is the annual appointment of the Swiss NGO DRR Platform gathering DRR experts to enhance an integrated approach to disaster risk reduction. This year’s theme is “F2F 2015: Integrated Flood Management: Acting locally, thinking beyond“, with a special focus on integrated water resource management and early warning systems. The event takes place on 10-11 November and includes a half day workshop for practitioners, followed by a public event with representatives of key institutions of government, science, private sector, international community and civil society. Although participants are already well up on the concept of Integrated Flood Management (IFM), the APFM is there to present the tools and services to support IFM available through its HelpDesk.
