About the Journal

Starting from the immeasurable significance and role of non-governmental organizations and civil society in the disaster risk management process (proactively contributing to support public policies and public actions for risk reduction; enhancing preparedness and resilience through public advocacy; providing assistance to affected people; collaborating with emergency and rescue services), Prof. Dr. Vladimir M. Cvetković decided on June 15, 2018, to establish the Scientific-Professional Society for Disaster Risk Management (NSD-URVS). The aim was to bring together scientists and practitioners from Serbia and the region to collectively enhance theoretical and empirical foundations and provide assistance to decision-makers at the local level and managers in emergency management processes.

On June 15, 2018, the inaugural assembly was held, and on the proposal of the founder, Prof. Dr. Vladimir M. Cvetković, professors from the Faculty of Security, the Criminalistic-Police University, the Faculty of Geography, and the Faculty of Forestry unanimously adopted the Statute and formed the Scientific-Professional Society for Disaster Risk Management.

To improve scientific activities within the Society, on December 21, 2020, the Statute was adopted, and the International Institute for Disaster Research was established. The primary focus of the International Institute for Disaster Research is scientific research in the field of disaster studies, conducted within the Institute. The scientific activities of the Institute align with the Law on Scientific Research Activities in Serbia and the established and adopted programmatic orientation of work. The Institute carries out its core activities through basic, applied, and developmental scientific research in the field of disaster risk management, including conducting scientific research on the phenomenology of disasters and hazards; preparedness and mitigation of disaster risks; protection and rescue in disasters; recovery from disasters; disaster risk management; international cooperation and legal frameworks in the disaster field; and other tasks as outlined in the Statute.

The Proceedings of the Scientific-Professional Society for Disaster Risk Management is a collection of scholarly works that showcases the research and expertise within the society. This compilation serves as a valuable resource for academics, practitioners, and decision-makers involved in the field of disaster risk management.

The anthology encompasses a diverse range of contributions, bringing together the collective knowledge and experiences of scientists and practitioners from Serbia and the broader region. Authored by professionals engaged in the study and application of disaster risk management principles, the papers within the proceedings cover various aspects of this critical field.

The contents of the proceedings reflect a multidisciplinary approach to disaster risk management, addressing key areas such as risk reduction strategies, preparedness and resilience building, protection and rescue operations, recovery processes, and international cooperation frameworks. The scholarly articles contribute to the advancement of theoretical frameworks and empirical evidence, fostering a deeper understanding of the complexities involved in managing risks during emergencies.

One of the strengths of the proceedings lies in its commitment to bridging the gap between theory and practice. By featuring contributions from both academic researchers and practitioners actively engaged in emergency management, the zbornik provides a comprehensive view of the challenges faced and the innovative solutions developed in the realm of disaster risk management.

Furthermore, the zbornik serves as a platform for the dissemination of cutting-edge research findings, best practices, and lessons learned. The diverse range of topics covered reflects the society's dedication to addressing the evolving landscape of disasters and emergencies, ensuring that the information presented is relevant and timely.

In summary, the Proceedings of the Scientific-Professional Society for Disaster Risk Management stands as a testament to the collaborative efforts of professionals committed to advancing the understanding and application of effective strategies in disaster risk management. As a valuable resource, this zbornik contributes to the ongoing discourse in the field, promoting knowledge exchange and facilitating the continuous improvement of practices in emergency preparedness and response.
