The Institute seeks to strengthen awareness of the risks associated with natural hazards. Each month, ICLR hosts a Webinar centring on current research and industry issues related to natural hazards. Slides from the webinars are then posted on the Institute’s website and recordings of the sessions are uploaded to ICLR”s YouTube Channel.
