Be prepared to join us for three days of interactive dialogue, inspiring presentations and networking opportunities.
The Environmental Emergencies Forum (EEF) is a dynamic forum to showcase experiences and innovations in improving prevention, preparedness and response to environmental emergencies, and for advocating the integration of environmental concerns into humanitarian action.

You will meet representatives from governments, industries, academia, aid agencies, and civil society who have the common mission to help countries become better prepared, more resilient, and able to effectively respond to environmental emergencies.*
