The Sendai Framework for Disaster Reduction 2015-2030 calls for a broad-based cooperation of actors from all areas of society (e.g. science and research, administration, politics, practice) and across national borders. Furthermore, the international frameworks should be implemented coherently, which can only be achieved through interdisciplinary cooperation between institutions and individuals, e.g. in the areas of disaster prevention, climate change adaptation and sustainable development.
DKKV is actively involved in a large number of national and international networks and cooperates with these partners in various contexts. These networks are listed below.
This list will be successively expanded.

Through the observer status held by DKKV, DKKV representatives are entitled to participate in the UN Climate Change Conference.
Within the network, new and interesting reports and work from the various disciplines are shared. Furthermore, the network aims to give more visibility to the members and their topics and thus enable cooperation for scholarships or research projects.
