What is Understanding Risk?  

Understanding Risk (UR) is an open and global community of over 7,000 experts and practitioners interested and active in the creation, communication and use of disaster risk information. UR community members share knowledge and experience, collaborate, and discuss innovation and best practice in risk assessment.

UR is the preeminent platform for collaboration, knowledge sharing, and innovation in identifying and assessing disaster risk.

The community convenes every two years at UR Forums – five-day events that highlight best practices, facilitate nontraditional partnerships and showcase the latest technical know-how in disaster risk identification. To learn a little more about what the UR Community is, check out a keynote from the manager of the UR Community, Simone Balog, who provided an overview at UR Boulder.
