GRF Davos reflects with its three pillars, the Risk Academy, the International Disaster and Risk Conferences (IDRC) and Workshops and the Platform for Networks, the necessity to create interaction and involvement between all key players, from line ministries and disaster, risk and safety management authorities to academic institutions, the private sector and the media.
GRF focuses on science and technology and promotes the sharing of knowledge between governments, industry, service providers, non-governmental organisations and, in particular, practitioners.
The main goals of GRF Davos are:
- to bridge the gap between science and practice
- to promote worldwide exchange of know-how and expertise
- to create solutions and promote good practice in integrative risk management and climate change adaptation for an improved understanding, assessment and management of disasters and risks that affect human safety, security, health, the environment, critical infrastructures, the economy and society at large
- to provide and manage a network for decision-makers, practitioners and experts from politics, government, business, science, NGOs, mass media and the public.
