The International Congress will bring together representatives of all interested countries and organizations to convene an emergency forum and collectively discuss the most topical problems with the purpose to reduce casualties and damage caused by natural disasters. The ultimate goal of the Congress is to discuss and approve the “INTERNATIONAL EMERGENCY PROGRAM TO REDUCE RISKS AND NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES OF NATURAL CATACLYSMS” developed jointly by the International Committee GEOCHANGE, WOSCO, GNFE and a group of international experts aimed to prepare a set of international laws on cooperation of the world community in disaster-stricken areas, prediction of natural disasters, earthquake engineering and other important issues.
Following a Congress resolution, the program will be presented to the UN Secretary-General and sent to all countries’ leaders and legislative bodies for consideration and appropriate action. There are some special sections of the Congress: the General Assembly of the International Committee GEOCHANGE on Global Environmental Change and the International Conference “Forecasting Earthquakes-2011”. We can already state that the Congress is going to be attended by representatives of more than 100 countries, with prominent scientists, members of parliaments and governments of various countries, famous social activists and policymakers among them.
