On Monday 20 and Tuesday 21 March, the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) had the pleasure of organizing the Scientific and Technical Advisory Group (STAG) meeting in Brussels.
The STAG meeting is an opportunity to address the challenges associated with disaster data collection in the context of the EM-DAT international disaster loss database project. This year’s themes were the suitability, evolution and compatibility of disaster classification systems, the problem of missing data, and new technological opportunities for data acquisition and sharing.
CRED warmly thanks all participants for their motivation and enthusiasm during this exchange of expertise and ideas and USAID for sponsoring the event. To access the program and the conclusions of the STAG meeting, visit the dedicated page.
