Together with two further presentations by Prof. Dr. Hendrik Tieben from the Chinese University of Hong Kong and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Detlef Kurth from the Technical University of Kaiserslautern and a concluding discussion, German and international practical examples, learnings and transfer potentials, also from and for the Asian region, were discussed. In this context, Prof. Dr. Kraas also addressed the high relevance of networking different stakeholders in disaster risk management, which has a high priority in the MYrisk project. Furthermore, the question of the transferability of individual concepts was pointed out in the concluding discussion. In particular, the various limitations of transferability to multiple cities need to be elaborated more fully. For the MYrisk project, this year’s Disaster Risk Reduction Conference offered the opportunity to learn about the latest research findings from a wide range of disciplines within this panel, as well as in other presentations. The team was pleased that this platform and exchange opportunity was made possible again this year.
