FVE in association with the Latvian Presidency and with the participation of the European Commission organise a conference focused on disaster management through a holisitc One Health approach.

The event will take place in Brussels - International Auditorium - on 16 and 17 April 2015 (Thursday afternoon and Friday morning).

Natural disasters, such as floods, earthquakes or extreme climate outbreaks, severely challenge the health and welfare of people, animals and the ecosystem; individually and collectively.

This conference emphasizes the need for a holistic approach in disaster management by taking into consideration the human – animal – ecosystem interfaces. This will allow for more efficient reaction, coordination and control during crises.

It is addressed to persons and organizations involved in natural disaster management plans; NGOs, competent authorities and regional offices that are part of the civil protection mechanism that provides humanitarian aid in the field; any stakeholder that can play a role in properly informing and guiding the public properly.
