This workshop will consider the intersection between international environmental law and disaster risk management. As threats like climate change narrow the distance between "natural" and "man-made" disasters there has been an increasing focus in disaster law on risk prevention and mitigation. Workshop participants will address what tools international environmental law offers to promote disaster risk reduction as well as available approaches for fostering greater institutional integration between disaster-focused and environmentally-oriented international institutions.
This workshop is organized by the Stanford Environmental and Natural Resources Law and Policy Program and ASIL's International Environmental Law and Disaster Law interest groups. It is co-sponsored by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and the United Nationals Environment Programme.
