This call was created with the aim of bringing together academic experts, researchers, scientists, postdoctoral fellows, business entities and students from all over the world.
This scientific-professional meeting is an excellent opportunity for the exchange of knowledge
and experiences, both internationally and interdisciplinary.
During the two days of the Congress, interesting lectures will be presented by academics, scientists and experts worldwide, who, in a multidisciplinary way, investigate and address the various fields on which the Natural Risks Congress is centered: Geosciences, Climate Change, Environmental Pollution, Geological Disasters and Earthquakes, Disaster Risk Management, Geographic Information and Remote Sensing, Global Warming, etc.
The "Congress on Natural Hazards-2018" is also very interested in knowing the contributions of students and young postdoctoral researchers, so from the Organizing Committee we want to give them the opportunity to present their research studies, while they can know the latest
achievements and updates of the knowledge.
Finally, we hope that this Conference will be an unforgettable personal and professional experience. Personally, I wish you a pleasant and rewarding stay in Australia.
The World complains and human societies face great challenges that require a rigorous and committed approach.
We´re waiting for you in Melbourne!
Sincerely from Spain.

Summary of Natural Hazards and Disaster Management conference
Annually Natural Disasters continue to strike and increase in magnitude, complexity, frequency and economic impact. At the same time, awareness of the process and potential benefits of disaster reduction is still confined to specialized circles, and has not yet been adequately communicated to policy makers and the general public. Natural Hazards and Disaster Management is playing an important role to create awareness and providing a platform to share and discuss on different types of Natural Hazards, Significance of Early warning systems and Risk Management strategies. World is looking for Reducing exposure to hazards, lessening vulnerability and property wise management, improving preparedness and early warning for adverse events by disaster risk reduction. Calling for development of a "global culture of prevention" and improved risk assessment, broader monitoring and communication of warnings, the Conference adopted the Natural Hazards and Disaster Management: Guidelines for Natural Disaster Prevention, Preparedness and Mitigation and we are organizing the series of Natural Hazards & Disaster Management conferences.
Scope and Importance
Natural Hazards Congress-2018 will provide a forum for discussion of the integration of Hazard information into effective emergency risk management. Applying science, technology and research information to best practice planning, warning, response and recovery capabilities will lower the impact of Disasters on environment. The conference will bring together expertise from international wide to enable the sharing of knowledge and strengthen technical sessions. The subject specific target audience of the conference is: emergency managers, planners, risk assessors, asset and utility managers, natural hazards researchers and scientists, experts on the environmental concerns, Delegate participations.
Natural Hazards & Disaster Management is an international, multidisciplinary forum for the publication of original contributions and the exchange of knowledge and experience on the Disaster Management. The study and research on Natural Hazards & Disaster Management is dedicated to conduct studies that advance academic disciplines and contribute to applied knowledge. The scope of the meeting is to brought Experts, Geologists, Ecologists, Professors, Geotechnical Engineers, Geo Scientists across the globe and to evaluate the consequences of human-driven disruption of natural system with a theme of “Significance of Early warning systems and risk management strategies "
Why in Melbourne, Australia?
Melbourne, Australia has emerged as a global city and business hub of the Asia pacific countries and has special concern on Natural Hazards & Disaster Management. Also Australia experiences a range of 'natural disasters' including bushfires, floods, severe storms, earthquakes and landslides. These Disasters cause great financial hardship for Environment, Humans. Especially in the areas of Geosciences, Coastal Geography, Geological disasters & Earthquakes, Climate Change, Disaster risk Management. Being located on the Pacific Ring (an area with a high degree of tectonic activity), Australia has to cope with the constant risk of volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, floods and tsunamis. During the past 20 years, Australia has made global headlines due to devastating natural disasters that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of human and animal lives, plus having a destructive effect on the land area (including infrastructure, and thus resulting in economic costs).

Coastal regions in Australia face the greatest financial risk from natural disasters because of their vulnerable locations and increasing cargo volumes, a risk-management firm. Over the last 10 years, the annual average cost of natural disasters in Australia is estimated at $32 million per year.. A simulations show that a major earthquake (occurring once every 30 years) could cause losses in excess of US$30 billion, which is 3 percent of Australia’s GDP. Damage and loss assessment report from recent major disasters show a consistent ranking of reconstruction needs with housing accounting for the largest expenditures followed by public infrastructure (primarily roads, schools, and health facilities). Thus, it is necessary for the better fiscal management of natural disaster due to a great exposed from natural disasters.
