In a changing world, more risks will appear and the future is more uncertainty.
RACR provides a unique international forum to discuss these issues from a scientific and technical point of view
and also in terms of management, services or usages.
RACR, launched by the Risk Analysis Council of China Association for Disaster Prevention in 2007
and taken over by SRA-China since 2011, is a series of biennial international conferences on risk analysis,
crisis response, and disaster prevention for specialists and stakeholders.
